In the garden

Some of the tomatoes I've been harvesting the past few days. Just a lot of different kinds. My favorites are the little orange Sungold cherry tomatoes and the Orange Valencia. They are so good.

I have no idea why these pictures are so huge.

My water was $75 for this last bill. Good grief! I knew it would be high because I am watering every day. But $75? Yikes.

But I just have to water these flowers. For the bees. And all the butterflies and other insects. It's always busy out here.

This is my biggest Mexican sunflower so far. These just popped up from last year. There are several others too. But this one gets watered more. And the pretty cosmos. I love these flowers!

I'm also watering the 2 rows of green beans with sunflowers down the middle of the rows. And some of the squash and zucchini too. And the tomatoes. And of course the blueberry and fig and elderberry bushes. And the mints and herbs.

I just heard on the news that N. Carolina is flooding. And Iowa. What is going on with our weather lately? We are in a serious drought here and other places are flooding?

I like the big pictures. Your zinnias are beautiful! Are the fluffy looking orange ones cosmos?

Yes, to the right in the last picture.

I wish I could get all the pictures this big now.
