Larkspur and Silvery Fir Tomatoes....

Larkspur is the easiest flower I know of. I save the seed and scatter in the very early spring and that's it. It will soon be going in this hot weather but this clump is getting afternoon shade.

Silvery Fir tomato from seed by Botanical Interests. This is three plants, the foliage is very nice and we will see how the tomatoes are. There are lots of green ones. It looks nice enough to be among the flowers.

That larkspur is beautiful. How nice it comes back after scattering the seeds. I'll have to look for some next year and plant them. It would be a colorful touch to the flowerbeds. Sure does look like you are going to have a lot of tomatoes soon. Nothing tastes better than a homegrown tomato.

Oh, Larkspur sounds like the flower for me Peggy! I have a wild plant with yellow flowers that grows in our yard all over and need to post a pic of it to see if anyone knows what it is. I hope your 4th is wonderful! ~*~Lisa
