This weekend, I planted the zucchini an butternut squash seedlings, started in containers 2 weeks ago.Do any of you know if rabbits and deer eat squash plants?  

I didn't have the ambition to build another raised bed, so they are just in the soil.  If nothing eats them in the next couple of weeks, I can build a cage around them.

All I need is a couple of bowls of something once in a while, to make it worthwhile.  We ate the tart cherries off the tree this week.  There were only a couple of handfulls - the tree is 3 years old, 6 feet tall, so not many cherries yet.  They were very good.  Juicy.

Here's today's production.  The snowpeas are "Oregon giant".  They are so good, even at a large size, they are good eaten out of hand.

Dominic, that bromeliad is awesome.  Strange and striking!

Patricia, are the peppers too dry?  Too much plant food?  Hard to say....  A lot of mine have been eaten - probably slugs - but no leaf curling.

Wow Dominic!  That's quite a show!  Thanks so much for sharing.

Chris-  I enjoyed your beech leaves photo.

The pictures I posted were of a Dyckia Bromeliad. A couple of days later shows the progression of the flowers.

Beautiful Chris.  Thanks for sharing.

Not from my garden, but it's the best picture I made in a long time, so I'm going to show it. I love beeches!

Dominic-

What is the first plant you posted called?  The one that has the red bloom on it?  I have seen them around town (I'm up in Gainesville) and always wondered what they were.

I have never had luck with African Violets, though I've tried several times.  Yours seem very content.

Comment by Dominic Florio on June 10, 2013 at 12:33pm

A friend who also lives in Fl, but is very city oriented, didn't realize that we could grow African Violets here.  I have mine under lights and I use the wick system to keep them evenly watered.

Six years ago someone gave me this plant.  It has multiplied into several plants.  I planted it on the outside of my fence so that the dogs would not tangle wit it, for obvious reasons.  I have threatened to mow it down for six years and have never weeded around it, also for obvious reasons.  I glanced at it yesterday and caught it exposing itself.  I'm glad that I didn't get rid of it.
