The garden has taken over the side of the pool deck. On the left is scarlet runner beans. They have been going nuts! Up too and over ten feet. They are very hearty but are slow producers. They have dried out a little today and may need some water. They have reportedly been used by Native Americans so we are putting them to the test. I am trying to give them as little water as possible letting the rain take care of it for me. I guess I just figure they must be pretty hearty. We have yet to water them and we have been low on rain with a hot summer. They do not like the heat much so even though they are on a east facing fence they are yet too produce many beans. I hope that they will hang in there till it cools. They will probably need a good watering if it doesn’t rain by tomorrow.
The sunflowers, also from Baker Creak are the Tiger Eye Mix. They come in different colors and sizes. They are all over the backyard homestead. I will post more later on. We are saving the seeds of the different colors even though they may have cross pollinated.
