1. Morning Glories. I've never planted them before. This year, I read somewhere that they look really cool vining up sunflowers. Now they are vining all over my garden fence, up sunflowers in the front, even up the wild patch of dill that has taken over part of my flower bed. They have taken a while to begin blooming, but they are fantastically cheery, and almost more beautiful because they hide after 11:00am.
2. Cucumbers. I'm on a serious vining kick, with the morning glories, crazy pole beans, and a vining black eyed Susans, but I'm in love with the cucumbers that I've vined around some sunflowers. I've been cautioned that this may kill my sunflowers, but so far they're all growing just fine, and I love the way it looks.
3. Purple Green Beans. They are everyone's favorite. In fact, Maya eats a handful of them raw every time we go outside. They are sweeter than regular green beans, more tender, and incredibly hardy and prolific plants. Plus, they turn green as they cook, so you know exactly when they are the right texture to eat!
4. Elliot in this hat. She looks so grown up!
