Never saw so many blooms on an Eggplant before. Usually there is 1 or 2 at a time. This one has 5 blooms on one stem, and another bloom on another stem. for a total of 6 blooms.  And a bumblebee trying to pollinate all of them. The pollen is visible on its hind leg. Very Happy

I love that picture, OG!  That bee just doing his work.  So cute!  

My sugar snaps need to be pulled, and so will my garlic when it dries out a bit out there.  Then I will amend and sow some beans (Dragon Tongue) and some heat tolerant lettuce.

Thanks! I love watching the pollinators at work. Yesterday I was watching all of the bees on the Buttonbush, and it sounded like I was at the beehive. Very Happy

A neighbor has four hives of honey bees, and they frequent our gardens. We share our vegetables with them, and they share their honey with us. N&C Midwest—June 2024 - Page 2 3170584802

I just cut the pea plants off at the soil level rather than pulling them so that the nitrogen pods stay in the soil.

What is your preferred heat tolerant lettuce? I'm growing Romaine (which I use as a leaf lettuce), and Merlot. Both seem to tolerate the heat fairly well.

I like Black Seeded Simpson lettuce in the heat- but I grow it in the shadier area of my patio,    I cut my peas off, the pole beans are already up in their place.

More bush beans planted in my 6x3 planter - then back to fall crops once they are finished.
