Summer in our Florida garden is full of humidity, heat, bugs & thunderstorms. Our sunflowers have completed their growing cycles, but they were still beautiful on their way to seed.
There is still an abundance of eggplant in the garden. I’ve been chatting on our facebook page about how to cook them & my followers have given me some awesome recipe suggestions!
Our tomatoes, green peppers, okra & squash have all either been defeated by disease & bugs or have completed their growing cycles. However, the parsley, sage, oregano & comfy herbs are doing quite well. Here is some potted Italian parsley that has been delicious to cook with this summer.
Pineapple mint is also on its way out. The blooms are beautiful though. I will need to dry some for my winter teas soon.
Afternoon thunderstorms are frequent now. My avocado plants are loving this tropical weather pattern!
Can’t have too many thunderstorms without seeing a rainbow!
The swamp lilies are next in line to bloom in the backyard. I love their white blooms in the summertime!
