Ah my small green babies, how you have grown!

Tomato cages are great for tomatoes and all, but I find them really helpful for squashes too! I don’t have the horizontal room for sprawling stems, so the cage helps funnel that growth upwards instead.

The poppies in my Bee Blend wildflower planters have come up in a range of beautiful shades, from the stunning red I posted the other day to these blushing white, watercolour coral, and vibrant rose pink specimens.

Bucket trio!

Red Robin cherry tomato, selected because I thought a compact determinate variety would be a nice change of pace from the ~5’ tall Sungolds of the last two years.

Purple Beauty sweet pepper, which I picked because honestly, how do you pass up a purple pepper? It’s like something out of a nursery rhyme.

Ronde de Nice zucchini, an heirloom variety whose fruits are the approximate size and shape of pool balls. Again, I picked this one because it seemed weird.

All three of these plants need lots of water, so I put them in self-watering planters made of nested 5 gal. buckets. I’ve had lots of success with this style of container!
