Out of all the annuals I planted this year, the zinnias are the only flowers that are flourishing. I planted them along the path up to the front door, so they greet me each time I walk up to the house. I love their color, and plan to buy more seeds for next spring, but I'll need to find a better location. These puppies grow tall! Maybe along a fence line or something.
I was afraid that our warm weather would be too much for our peas, but it seems I've found a decently shady spot for them, so they continue to grow. These are the first I've shelled. Usually they don't last long enough, and I eat them as snap peas, but I'm trying give the pods time to mature now.
My kombucha project (growing a scoby from a bottle of raw store kombucha) is working! I've got a mother developing on the top of my jar, so I'm brewing another batch of tea as I type this to help it grow stronger.
I picked this season's first ripe cherry tomatoes on Wednesday, and cut them both in half to share with Matt. So sweet and juicy! Can't wait for the larger tomatoes to ripen, too.
