Sweet-peas about to bloom. CAN NOT WAIT.
Hostas, Echinacea (Knee Highs) Phlox Purple & Pale Purple almost White, Tomatoes (green zebra, san marzano, red brandywine, beefmaster, mortgage lifter, big boy growing, growing and french breakfast radishes, beets (I hope you make it as the root vegetables seems to struggle in the boxes) many varieties of lettuce (summer savory, radicchio, romaine, red oakleaf , butterhead - though my favorite arugula is done. Geraniums and basil (italian and thai) cilantro, oregano, sage, mint,chocolate mint, rosemary, parsley, chives, chamomile, lemon balm, catnip and marigolds. Pole Beans, Costata Romanesco Zucchini (which I like to sing in a funny Italian accent and wind up sounding like a loon). Cosmos and Nasturtium which are stubborn to bloom as is the hydrangea (wah!) roses (still a few) and neon pink. Jalapenos (soon I hope) Rainbow Chard and Red Chard, Lilies, A gorgeous Dahlia (my husband called it a weed - ha!) Black Eyed Susans, Clematis, Lavender (past bloom) Pansies ( a few still managed to survive the heat wave) lobelia, dianthus, vanilla spoon ( a white flower that I can't remember it's proper name), some peach flowers whose name escapes me - delicate and pretty, grapes, peaches, apples ( few out there on the tree), cherries (four), raspberries, rhubarb, currants and gooseberries, cantaloupe & blackberries ripening now.
I'm sure I forget many but, I think this gives you a good idea. A garden evolving each year a little different.
