My family's life has been chaotic over the past couple of months, so I haven't had as much time to devote to my plants as I would like. Luckily, Mother Nature has been kind, providing just the right amount of sun and rain to keep everyone happy!

The artichoke plants are beginning to resemble their thistle cousins, while the hops outgrows its pot - I need to transplant it to a bigger pot soon!

My runner beans are growing like weeds! The hummingbirds are enjoying the blooms. There are cucamelons and morning glories hiding among the beans, too.

    • Thank you, it makes me happy to see how well everything is doing, even without my intervention. I do hope to get the weeding done today though, those crabgrasses seem to enjoy the garden soil a bit too much!

    • I did a bit of weeding on Thursday before the rain came. Weeds seem to be never ending this year. At least my vegetables are doing well

    • Thank you, but it's mostly not my doing - Mother Nature has been very generous to me this year!

    • Thank you! I'm very lucky to live in rural NH. Our town may shut down by 9:00 PM, but it's a beautiful place.

    • It's the first time I've seen an artichoke plant, too. 😁 I'm experimenting, artichokes are not typically grown around here. I'm not sure if there's enough time in our growing season for artichokes to develop, but I'm keeping my fingers...
