Garden Post #1- June 30

This is the first in what I hope will be a series of garden reports–what’s growing, what we’re harvesting, what there is to complain about (if you have a garden, you know what I mean!).

First –what we are harvesting now: baby carrots, dill, snow peas, garlic scapes (pictured), as well as chard, mustard greens, lettuce, beet greens, radishes and the odd strawberry or two.

Complaints–there has been a LOT of rain, which is both good and bad, but a little more sun would help discourage slugs and snails–the ducks have had to help out with this problem–otherwise, pretty much the usual pests, weeds, blackflies and deerflies (though I have to admit, the biting insects have been worse).

Now for a visual tour of what’s growing–if I did this a week ago, I would have included the roses and peonies, but several heavy rainstorms have ruined most of those blooms, so we’ll stick to the vegetable garden:


 Thanks to Margaret for some of the images in this post (and for being a great garden helper)!

    What no comments? So far so good, it is a long wait for fresh greens.
