Ladybugs creep me out.

Well, I don't mind them from a distance, but when they're crawling on you... /shudder/. But our garden's growing! Remember my ginger mint and lemon balm that started in little 4 inch clay pots? Here they are now! Time to dry some for tea:

And these are amazing! They took forever to bloom but they were worth it. They kinda look like giant tissue paper flowers:
And today, under extreme duress, I thinned out the carrots & beets. The carrots are looking a little wilted, we'll see if they survive the transplant:

And here's our lovely pumpkin! Wonder if it'll actually make a pumpkin this year.
