Summer update

The Lavender is in full bloom now.

I planed some squash and zucchini in the garden today and cleared out some of the old plants from spring. I also dug up the strawberries since the take a lot of space and aren't producing any berries these days. I also thew in some arugula, kale, and spinach seeds. I don't have room for everything but you never know what will do well. The peas have pods now but they aren't fat yet. Maybe a few more days.

yard work

tulips are close to blooming

Made a new box around the raspberries and filled in with bark.

New bark in the flower beds

garden boxes are all planted! I threw in some sunflowers yesterday and during the week added some radishes and peas. I have new little metal tags that say what everything is so the people walking down the street can see what I'm growing.

And I finally got the circle closed around the tree. Originally we couldn't close it because the stake holding up the tree was in the way. That was only 5 yrs ago and the tree doesn't need help any more!

garden boxes

The lavendar is growing and needed trimming already!

Yellow crocus, purple crocus, and hyacinth all at once. It smells so good!

I turned over the soil in the garden boxes. Still have winter arugula.
I'm getting ready to plant some more lettuce.
