In The Garden- Up Close and Personal

I sent Jared out to get an updated image for Watch My Garden Grow (see sidebar) and found several lovely macro shots on my camera as well.

Broccoli- Ok, I have a confession to make here. Please don’t think I’m stupid, I really don’t like broccoli and haven’t ever given the plant a lot of thought, but until this week, I had no idea that each of those little green nubs turns into a lovely yellow flower! I just left the broccoli on the plant thinking they would grow larger when imagine my surprise when I found it covered in flowers. My son, who’ll eat anything outside, said that they were a delicious, surprisingly sweet flower.

Corn- leaf with pollen grains above and silk below.

An unwelcome guest! Our chickens love to eat Japanese Beetles, but not as much as they love to eat lettuce and dust bathe in the zucchini hills so they’re not allowing inside the garden leaving the beetles to decimate the pole bean leaves.
