Corn towers and potatoes

It's one month after Farmer Dick's corn was knee high by the Fourth of July, and now it towers over his head! Now if our nice warm weather will just hold out a little longer ...

That's his dog, Ben Bailey, who you may remember reading about last year for his birthday party. Click here to read "Dog Party Delivers."

Even though Dave wanted to wait until later to harvest potatoes, I couldn't resist digging around a little. The reds and Yukon golds are big and beautiful, so we're having some tonight. (Dave won't know -- he's kayaking in Alaska and won't see this until he emerges from the wilderness.)

Across the street, Rosemary's nasturtiums and baby's breath are looking good:

Have a colorful day!

Enjoy the potatoes, Sherrie, they look yummy! Nasturtiums are gorgeous, too. In my family we call them: Grandma Alice's flowers, because my kids Great Grandma Alice on their Dads side loved them and planted them every year.
