|Lettuce going to seed.|
The cucumbers are starting to produce and so are the bush beans. I had to stop my children from pulling up every single carrot the other day, not that I can blame them because they are pretty tasty. We still have plenty of kale, swiss chard and beets, but no lettuce or spinach. I've let some lettuce go to seed. out of curiosity.
My echinacea is blooming and I'm not the only one happy to see them. The bees have been enjoying them just as much as me. And about bees.. I have this fantasy of having backyard bees... is that crazy?
