IMG_2134pretty wee pink and white blooms on the joiner cat mint. the bumble bees like it, so a few more days and i will trim it back low. the stem is square!

IMG_2136my new favorite garden tool. a rubber snake to protect the tomatoes! i have two and i move them around. i have lots of pigweed in this tomato bed. I bought the closest to resemble a corn snake. they didn’t have any snakes that looked like garters. found at the detroit zoo gift shop!
