sunflowers are my favorite. my mother always planted them in the backyard and they would bloom at the end of the summer right around my birthday every year. i always knew when i had my own garden i would plant a bunch, unfortunately most of them died, but this one triumphantly bloomed last night.
we also have a lot of herbs, different mints, basils, and an abundant number of jalapenos. it's always really nice to be able to go out in the backyard and grab spices while cooking. they're so much better than the ones at krogerz.
next year we hope to have a bigger garden with pumpkins and squash, but i think this is a good start for now.
