    Yes. That cilantro has tiny flowers if you let it grow. Great for specific pollinators that need those small flowers. a host plant for ladybugs too. Might see their larva crawling all over it.
    Nature is something.
    Sorry about your plants Rob. F..k it all sometimes!  ❤️ 
    Sweet
     Will be hard not to eat them all. Thx for sharing your green thumb tips!

    My beet picture is kinda fake news. All greens mainly. Cooked the greens and ahh hmmm. Not my thing. Maybe make and omelet with some. Or compost.
    Just cut some of my peas back so the cucumbers can grow.  A couple of cherry tomatoes are ready and plants look good. Peppers look meh. I never. Have much luck with them. Maybe just need to wait and will take off. Always love getting my hands dirty anyway.

    Just planted yellow stringbean seeds and some pole beans.
    Maybe harvest the rest of my beets and think of something else to plant there.

    Yeah. I saw some small ones at a farm. Not sure if they would have gotten bigger if I left them. Some I pulled up had some bug damage and would have been chomped if I left them. 
    Always an experiment. Good times.

    Oooohhhhh. Left beets and turnips in water in my cooler in the hot sun. Took the lot to the compost. Worm/maggot food. Ripe and stinky!

    They flowered! Can I eat them?

    Nice! Yes .   I'd eat the greens and leave the flowers. You could probably eat them too. I don't eat mine. Look out for cute baby bugs before you eat it. Maybe soak in a bowl of water, inspect and release the bugs back to the garden. Like a science experiment. Enjoy.

    Planted my own flowers this summer out front rather than buying. I did a bee attractant/food variety blend. My sister gave me some flowers for the backyard but I can see they can't survive the Okanagan sun like the pink ones I usually get. 

    Oh and I killed the aloe vera I got from mother's day when I repotted the growing flower. I definitely have room to grow in this area!
