Garden Update

The garden has been doing great despite the all-inevitable upper 90’s heat wave that has swept over most of Texas recently. I just realized that I hadn’t posted any new pictures since things had just started growing.

This adorable Chiremen pumpkin has been turning a darker shade of green every day it seems.


Before we know it we’re going to be up to our ears in corn {pardon the pun}


Our first sunflowers are blooming! This variety is called Velvet Queen and since it is an heirloom variety {not a hybrid} every single flower is different. Their colors range from a deep maroon to yellow with orange tips.

This round of sunflowers is just a test run…we’ll plant the flowers that will be used for the wedding in a few weeks!
