Week 13

Siblings ready to roll.
Off to pick berries.
Hats to protect little heads.

"Funny shaped raspberry, Aunt Lorrie."

More to ripen. A promise of what's to come.

These are all doubles.
I need to do some research to find out why.

A ripe Ananas Noire tomato. Yum. 
Picking tomatoes does wonderful 
things to your hands, too.

The newest from Oregon State University,
Indigo Rose tomato. Purple on the outside, red on the inside.

White eggplant, named Casper.

Old fashioned eggplant. Very slow growing.

Yellow Patty Pan summer squash.

Indigo Rose after one bite.

Lady bug on a purple bean leaf.

Various cherry tomatoes.

What a silly looking yellow
crookneck squash. :)
We giggled over this one.

Oh, newly dug potatoes. Hmmm.
What should we do with you?

Corn tassles.
The pollen in the purple parts needs to land
on the corn silk of the ears or the corn kernels won't fill out.

Tassles with pollen.

Corn silk on the top of the ears.
Each goes to a corn kernel.

Dahlias, blue statice.

Cactus zinnias and snapdragons.
Every kid loves to play with snapdragons.



Roses, blue statice.

Yellow calla lilies and yellow yarrow.

A strange looking triple zinnia.
How cool is this!

Very fragrant carnations.

I can't get enough of this two toned rose.

Such delicate colors on this rose.

Grams favorite dahlia. Yes, this is it.

An iced latte break with coffee ice cubes, too. Lisa usually makes her own coffee syrup, she's creative like that!
