The battle of the veg patch

2010.07.09

In the spring my Mum gave us four sunflower plants to go in our back garden. They’re planted at the back of our vegetable patch and are now thriving, although their stems have grown in all sorts of odd directions to make the best of the sun. The first of the flowers opened yesterday so I thought I’d make the most of the sunshine this evening to take a few photos. There was quite a strong gusty wind so I had a hard time catching the single flower still for long enough but I did manage to capture this one close up. There are lots of buds though so there will be plenty of other sunflower shooting opportunities as the weeks go by. That’s assuming they’re not completely infested by the other Triffids growing in our veg patch that is….

In front of the sunflowers are our two wigwams of runner beans. They’re growing strongly but sadly though they seem to be a particularly intellectually challenged breed of bean. First of all we had to point them in the right direction to get them to cling to the bamboo poles. They’ve now reached the top where some of them have just kept growing out the top while others have decided to wind themselves around the sunflowers. Trust us to be growing stupid beans!! It’ll be interesting to see who wins this battle…..
