The corn is going to town, as is the patty pan squash, pole beans, melons, and tomatoes ( I have a bunch of green ones!) I jumped the gun and though my cucumbers and watermelon weren't going to germinate so I bought a couple plants on impulse when I was at the nursery - of course after I popped the plants in the ground, the seeds started popping up! The watermelon seed I planed is an heirloom variety, so I really want it - I'm going to be stupid and leave them all - I'll deal with the miles of vines somehow! haha!
I planted marigolds, zinnias, geraniums, salvia and cosmos around the edges. I used to hate marigolds - what was I thinking? they're beautiful! and tough! I grew a bunch from seed and some of my favorite varieties are this Flagstaff, which is supposed to get 3-5ft tall. it's taller than the others now, and the flowers are gigantic!
This one is called Yummy Mummy - it's kind of curly. The red ones to the right are called Cottage Red, I think. I ended up buying a couple flats more, so I'll definitely plant more from seed next winter!
