I (finally) had a weekend at home. We worked in the garden, went canoeing in the heat of the day, and built a new flower bed.
Most of what you can see in the garden is still just garlic, lettuces, and peas. But I love how pretty the rows look. I’ve planted rows of leeks, cabbage, carrots, and beets west of the pea trellises*. Soon there will be more pretty rows! I’ve finally accepted that I should plant broccoli and brussel sprouts from starts because it’s too late for seeds. They’re in the garden now too.
That whittles down the to-plant list leaving squashes, tomatoes, and green beans.
Meanwhile the fruits are looking happy this year. Our scruffy front acre is setting bloom for another crazy harvest of blackberries. The plum trees didn’t get pinched by frost. And look:
I think these are tiny grape buds!
*the snap peas I grow only get about 3′ tall. I discovered completely by accident that the love trellising up tomato cages!
