Garden Update - June 11

We've had another week with more rain than sun. I sneaked out to the garden yesterday to take pictures between the showers!
Most of the plants are growing well. The peppers are struggling, and the sugar snap peas look like they might need some support as they grow. I've already used all of my tomato cages, so we'll have to work on that one.

This is one of two cucumber plants in our garden. They're growing slowly, so far.

Some of the tomato plants are looking very healthy and bushy. About half of them even have blossoms.

This is one of the tomato plants that the rabbit trimmed for me. This shot also gives you a closer look at the recycled plastic-wood that my husband used to build the raised bed.

This zucchini plant is growing like a weed. Can you see the yellow blossom in the center of the plant?

This is a sugar snap pea plant. It's growing but not as fast as some of the others, and I don't know what the white residue is. Any ideas?

On to the flower beds. The chrysanthemum that looks like a daisy is starting to bloom!

The lilies are forming buds:

This miniature rose bush is a sad-looking specimen, but the flowers are pretty!
