onion flower and a bee
Finally! Sweet pea time! Just look at these lovelies - I'm going to harvest a few peas today. Since it gets really cold here at night my garden doesn't grow fast anymore. I think usually plants grow faster during warm nights after being watered in the evening. Here it's a different story: when the sun is up it's really hot and dry, then in the evening I water my little garden but air cools down rapidly and even in the morning before about 9am it's still pretty cold. I hope my carrots and beets get enough warmth to grow before the end of September. Although dill looks better and better. It's so thick and tasty! I didn't take any pictures of it this time because it looks just as always - like a forest :-) If you're interested you can find lots of dill photos in my previous garden posts. We topped salmon with this tasty herb the other night and grilled it. Mmmm yumm! My advice for any gardener - plant some dill, you'd love it!
