The vegetable garden is in. It doesn’t look like much but it includes lettuce (from starts that should be ready to harvest next week) beets, chard, cilantro, sugar snaps and sweet peas, radishes, lettuce mix and zucchini , as well as broccoli, brussel sprouts, tomato and cucumber seedlings.
In the garden extension on the other side of the raspberry patch I have winter squash, crookneck squash, yellow and green filet beans and a potato barrel. It is even less picturesque that the garden above. This is the first summer of my ‘retirement’ and I have at least accomplished being on time with vegetable planting. This is a most satisfied feeling. Especially since that mean an early start to harvesting.
We have survived several nights of cold, but not freezing, temperatures. Now it is hot and I am hoping for a good rain, not just the predicted showers. I’ve been watering, but it is not easy. On to the ornamental gardens! Such as they are.
