I am out in the garden a lot these days, and boy is it growing. I feel I haven’t shown you enough of the garden this spring. And now it is summer. Officially and by ambient air temperature.
Here are some new photos-
Nasturtiums, grown from seed. The first nasturtium bloom opened today.
These little guys will grow into storage onions. I have quite a few planted around. A circle of them around my second planting of peas, some interspersed in a planter with lettuce (that the chickens and baby sadly have harvested a bit prematurely), and many interplanted in the main garden bed.
A cucumber and a sunflower growing together in perfect harmony. It is a bit on the late side to plant each of these, but I am still within the time limit, and I have faith in the heat of the summer to come.
Peas! and the aforementioned onions. I planted three plantings of peas several weeks apart, and the girls and I have been snacking on peas for over a month now. Here in Portland, OR, we start planting peas on Valentines Day.
Dill seed sprouting. A Michigan friend gave me this seed head out of his garden two years ago, and last week I planted them. I left the seed head there as a marker, so I would know what I planted. Plus, doesn’t it look sweet?
I hope everyone is getting in some gardening time, whether it is on your front steps, in a community garden, or at your grandma’s house.
So long for now.
