My favorite thing in our garden this summer? Zinnias. Also the cheapest and easiest thing in our garden this year since they were grown from a few packets of seeds. I filled our largest raised bed with several types of Zinnia seeds, some Sunflowers, Milkweed and a mix of seeds to attract the good bugs. And voila!—fresh flowers for the house all summer and probably into the October here on the Gulf Coast. I'm always amazed that this much good stuff can spring from those little seeds.
