Still no rain, so I’m taking bottles down to the plot most days. Good for seeing the progress – for example the first blush of red on a tomato.

And the first dahlias opening and the first poppies appearing in bed 1. It’s going to be interesting gathering seed from these beds at the end of the season for spreading in the boundaries next spring. I might keep a big bed for flowers, but probably not both. Because … gourds.
