I love cactus. I have one outdoor one but it hasn't bloomed in a while. I may have to move it and see if I can get it to rebloom like yours is.

Ugh. Color me jealous Razz

I have tomato plants with lots of foliage and golf ball sized tomatoes. But, its so cool the last few days, I'm not sure they's ripen...and if they do, with all the rain, they may be tasteless Sad

Have picked a few Serrano peppers, though.

Your garden looks great and I love the picture of Leo smelling the flower. Should have named him Ferdinand,

I believe your unidentified plant may be a variety of Amaranth.  If you google Amaranth and then go to images you'll see several varieties and some look just like your photo.

What a beautiful garden you have! Smile

Your question prompted me to google it; the grain head looks similar to maize which also made me wonder. According to WikiPedia, the answer is yes.

Since gardening is scattered all over, I'll comment here ...

Cucmbers, still have a few new ones forming on the vine - but Sasha has decided that she *really* likes cucumbers so I've had to shorten her lead so she can't reach the garden space. What are forming up now look better than what I had growing earlier, but found that overwatering cuke's leads to yellow cukes so I've cut back some and they're looking better.

Cantaloupe - got one and that'll be one that goes in next year; I just planted two plants (small garden) and I'm getting two cantaloupes but the one I got out earlier was really good!!

Have more green and yellow peppers forming up - the pests (bugs and birds) seem to leave the yellow ones alone and I'm hoping I can get a couple of the green ones now. I beat the pests to one out of about 4 earlier.

Ditto the tomatoes - I've gotten two, have one on my window sill, they have good flavour but the birds<?> also agree they taste good and they get to them before I do. Saw how another of the locals had his staked to t-posts and he's got a good selection of fruit so I think I'll try that next year.

@RedFlashFire05, not meaning to hijack your thread, I tend to just toss my comments about my small garden out at random ....

Leo loves cucumber from the garden, its one of his favorites, until the watermelon starts fruiting. its got a few flowers but for got to get pictures.
Leo's first garden Img_4412

our cantaloupe dried up due to some slight over planting  Laughing.
Laughing  Wink , hate though buggers. i usually use a gallon of soapy water to 4 tsp of baking soda and spray every 3 to 4 days. work very well.
we have some black bell peppers still growing but its so tiny. the chilies are producing an abundance of chilies.

so far the tomatoes are still growing, i let Leo in this morning he headed to the tomatoes to see if any were ready.
Leo's first garden Img_4510

we also cut the Amaranth and collected the seeds this one was the tallest my mom posed for the picture. it looks about 7 ft tall.
Leo's first garden Img_4512

so far the sweet potatoes are surviving the scorching heat over the last 3 days.
Leo's first garden Img_4413

they will be ready in like 3 months to harvest.
Leo's first garden Img_4414

the big pumpkin my mom planted has one almost ready to eat.
Leo's first garden Img_4415

the cactus fruit was finally ready to eat.
Leo's first garden Img_4410

it was very good, and we all shard it. the other cactus had 2 more, but every one couldn't wait to taste this one.
