Hello friends! It has been a rainy and cool week here on the Central Coast of California. Luckily on Wednesday afternoon the sun finally appeared and we got a good look at our rain-soaked garden. Are you ready? Let's stroll!
In the front yard, here is our "Pot of Gold" Chard. It has done very well with the rain and chilly weather. It's almost too pretty to eat!
This is a "Garden Candy" Cherry Tomato plant. The gardeners where our blog-Mom works grew it from a seed and gave Mom the seedling. It's almost in bloom all ready!
The backyard flower garden is just starting to sprout. Mom is growing everything from seed this year. She is eager to see her Zinnias and Cosmos. They are tiny now.
Here are some sunflowers that the birds planted. Our bird feeder is very close to the flower bed. Who knows? One of these may be a future SUNFLOWERZILLA!!! (That's gopher wire you see in the background. Mom is NOT taking chances this year.)
Last but not least, here is one of our transplanted tomato seedlings. Mom put it outside for five days to harden off, and then she transplanted it. It's a container variety called "Super Bush". We are hoping it gets some warmer weather soon, because it looks a bit wimpy.
Thanks for strolling with us today friends! Don't forget to check out all the other Feline (and some Canine) gardeners today.
