Open Sunlowers and a Watermelon...

Here we have the "Baby group"-- maybe 3' tall-- in the West corner of the garden...



["Front Man!"]


[Here's the baby of the entire sunflower family in ol' Cyg's Eden-- this one is actually in the S. corner-- and about 18" tall overall-- the rest of the "smalls" are maybe 3'...]



And then we got the Granddaddy group-- in the mason bricks S.E. bordering the cantaloupe/watermelon vines...
These wonders are well above six feet tall-- the smaller {background sunflower} only three days ago now taking over as height king from his Brother--


[Note the coloration difference from varying pollenation maturation times in the faces ('dark' spots)]






[And again with the pollenation coloring. Cool differentiation.
{Well... that, or I'm just weird...
One can hope...! ha!}]


OH!!! And a Mrs. A.M.M. wanted to see my Melon!!! {Can you imagine! The AUDACITY!!! HA!}

So, if it make her happy... take a peek!!! ha!





[Um, it's bigger than the phone makes it look...
REALLY!!!]

Slainte, Folks!

Oh! Cygnus!

The sunflowers are beautiful. I am particularly fond of the baby sunflower, it is so cute.

The melon is looking good and coming along quite nicely. It should be ready in a few days, no? I hope it tastes as good as it looks.

Hugs~Felinae~

If I can get my video to work, I'll take one of me in Eden harvesting, opening, and eating it right there on site.

Hey, who's that melon calling on the phone?

Stephanie in AR said...

Looks wonderful! Our first year garden is lagging quite a bit, I suspect the clay is holding everything back.

Ken said...

...in a word ?...nice...i say eat the melon now...lol

Kyddryn said...

Sir, if you post that video on the net, scores of women will have heart failure...and die happy.

Debra-- I believe she's got a direct link to the cucumber patch... ha!

Lady Rocks... Sure, we know what ya mean. Wanna help me shoot the melon vid, then?!?
PLEEZEE??? ~lol~

Lady Stephanie-- my second plantings have slowed down to naught-- just too hot right now...
Mucho water and another few... well, six weeks or so, and we'll be eatin' a-plenty!
Hope the roots pave way in the clay for future clay breakage. And that this year gives you some good bounty anyhow!
Thanks for the visit and comment, my Ozark friend!

Ken-- we gotta at least wait until the Everclear is properly saturating the melon's flesh... ha!
Thanks, Buddy!

Lady K...
Silly, Lady!
Well, I don't wanna cause anyone's demise, but if we're talking Michelle's "little Death", well then... I wawnt two-way cameras! ha!
HONESTLY!!!
:D
