Time for a garden update now that we’ve got some things planted.
I’m giving corn another try, although I’m sure the varmints will get it again before it’s full grown. Even if we don’t get to eat it, we can still have fun—I planted a patch in a random pattern and figured the kids can have fun wandering around in there when it gets over their head.
H has also been interested in creating a butterfly garden so we’ve done some research about what butterflies around Berkeley like and have planted three different flowering plants. Here is one of the plants just starting to create some purple and yellow flowers.
The last plant is something that just started growing last year and has jumped up lately to around 5 feet tall. I have no idea what it is though (an Audrey 2 maybe?). Anyone know? I can take close-up shots of the leaves if that would help.
