the sunflowers, which we planted in a circle on the whim of our spring intern, Sarah, are about 13′ tall now. they tower over the garden.
so i took about nine zillion photos of them.
only slightly photoshopped. :)
this might be my favorite view in the garden this year.
towering. seriously. that’s the apricot tree in the foreground.
if we’re going to name the place Sunflower River, we should have sufnlowers, right? so now you get to see as much of them as i do. :)
volunteer corn sprouted among the sunflowers. it’s a week or so ahead of the corn we planted, already in tassel.
corn (Navajo red corn this year), beans & squash. that’s santo domingo tobacco on the end, helping stave off grasshoppers. it’s no panacea, but it helps.

hazy as it is, i’m really fond of this image.
