Three developments in the garden...
We found a sunflower...this is the oil crop sunflower seeds that I planted in paper pots back in January. I planted a few in a pot in front of the planting shed.
....and here's the first tomatillo! Its enclosed in a little papery pod. This plant has gotten so tall I had to stake it up, it had fallen over during our little rain shower with some wind this morning. Now I only need a few dozen more and I can make tomatillo sauce!
And the Scarlet Runner Beans have started to flower. They are reaching for the fencing, too. So beautiful!
