In the garden today, July 30, 2009

The sunflower is huge. As the seeds develop it gets more bulbous.

It is getting very top heavy. This is a photo taken from directly underneath.

The bee block is a big hit this year too. The most desirable holes are almost completely filled. I think I need to make another block this week.

Pomegranates are looking good this year.

Pimientos de PadrĂ³n peppers are growing pretty well. I got the pepper plants in the ground late so they are just starting to produce. Emily is waiting for me to bring her a big bag of these beauties. This one is ready to be picked. Happy Quail Farms has more info about this pepper and it's origin.
