Five courgettes.

Three borlotti beans.

Weather has to get hotter in the UK.

I found purple beans at the garden centre today. They looked so cute I had to get some. So I'e now 12 purple bean plants for £2.





Anyone else grown purple beans?

My purple sage from last year looks fantastic this year, it's got really big.

Trying broccoli for the first time that I've grown from seed. I know it's bit late in the season but they've been slow to grow.

The tomato plants have really come on, all 30 of them. Going to have to give some to friends.

Good that we can eat the purple flowers from the chives although haven't eaten them yet.

Have you ever heard of buying lady bugs to protect your flowers?

I have a ton of flowers in my backyard that I planted myself

I saw a plastic container at Lowe’s full of lady bugs and I asked the cashier what they were there for and he said to eat bugs off flowers.

I was thinking of going to get some for photography purposes!

Ever heard of this?

I know your question was not directed at me, but i can say yes to your question, for some types of bugs, Lady bugs do eat the bad ones, they are very good to have in your garden. Yeah3

I have lady bugs all over the place here lol. Usually when I get in the truck, I have to jump back out and brush a couple off the windshield before I take off. I think they're a cool bug, I'm good with them hanging out at my place :P

I am assuming they will hang around as long as there are plants for them. I would be worried about your heat, but if they are selling them locally, I am guessing they will be fine. I admit, I'm kinda looking forward to one of your close-ups of a lady bug hanging out on a flower petal :P

Duuuu it! Heartflowers
