I have my first sunflower.
The leaves have gray patches on them. I've seen this on zinnias. I think it's from all the rain we had followed, immediately by sultry weather. The plant doesn't get the chance to fully dry off. Generally speaking, it doesn't hurt the plant, just makes it look a bit unsightly. This flower is a good 3 weeks earlier than last year and it's also about 2 feet shorter than last year. I don't care. When I see this as I come home, I smile.
There will be a pepper harvest this weekend.
Beverage: Blackberry tea
