Random Images June 2012

  While the veggies are busy growing, I thought I'd share some of these images from our garden.
Earlier this year I wondered if we had calendula or bachelor buttons growing in our garden.  As the photo proves - they're bachelor buttons.

The spinach, which looked a little beat up earlier this spring has recovered nicely.  We've had a few suppers from this collection.  

 Looks like one leaf could feed a family of four!

Black Swallowtail caterpillar on the volunteer dill.  My kids have transplanted some dill with tiny eggs into their butterfly hatchery that their dad helped build last year.  

Looks like this rogue milkweed was all that was needed for these two monarch caterpillars.

And finally, another mystery plant growing where Melanie had her mixed flower bed last year.  Is it a flower or a nasty weed eager to spread its seed in our garden?  Does anyone know?
