In which "being green" isn't difficult at all here at Haiku Farm
Here are photos from June 21st:
|Haenaheim Garden: peas, beans, corn (and weeds)|
|Volunteer foxgloves (if I like them, they aren't weeds--right??)|
For contrast, here are photos I took this morning:
|Haenaheim garden: the purple peas will make red soup peas, the corn is growing, |
there are SUNFLOWERS AND BEAN VINES. And weeds, sigh.
|Soup pea flowers|
|The cold/wet spring was hard on early pollinators, but a few got out and did the work:|
we have some plums on Pickles' tree, and a LOT of apples up in the orchard.
|Even more, even bigger foxgloves.|
|Butterbush squash (and weeds)|
|Potato flowers = I can start stealing new potatoes this week|
|Tomato flowers. The tomatoes are hidden |
inside the garden greenhouse to keep them out of the rain.
|This broccoli survived the onslaught of the Slug Army. Not everyone did.|
|Strawberries for breakfast every morning|
How about a non-plant update?
|Fox waits for the garbage truck|
|Turkeys: growing fast, but not getting smarter.|
|Rumplecatskin does not like very hot weather|
|The river is cool and quiet|
|Nasturtiums and Dragon|
It's not nearly as hot now as it was last year at this time (when we had a "heat bubble" event that made everybody miserable), but after a long, cold, wet spring we are ready for sunshine and temps above 60 degrees.
Now, if only I could get the weeds under control.
