I really do enjoy growing calendula, they are softly pretty, the buds are so cute. Now there is a fair amount of
mildew on the plants and quite a few seed heads but they keep on keeping on.
Calendula has an interesting smell which I quite like, it is edible and has been used as a natural medicine. It is commonly used in skin salves to treat irritated skin.
Today I'm showing you what popped up in my garden and someone else's garden. The potatoes grew in the finished compost and some volunteers in the garden beds. So far this summer's volunteers have been pretty awesome.
The tomatoes and peppers come from a friends whoes Father grew these tomatoes in a warm and sunny area of WA, obviously not in the cloudy rainy Seattle area. Beautiful tomatoes and peppers.
