i'm not sure how i managed to forget about sharing an overview of our may garden except to say that it was quite the busy month! may came & went with lots of homegrown salads & some sugar snap pea harvests.
we're now in the thick of the hot & humid june garden with the hopeful promise of summer crops just around the corner.
in the garden - june 2016
here's a last look at our garden in april & here's a fun overview of our garden in june of last year!
our annual tradition of zinnias & sunflowers in the front garden bed is coming along! we should have many blooms in the next week or two! i am so excited to begin harvesting large bouquets of sunflowers for our kitchen table!
my nephew comes over once a week for a little farm date. last week he spent the evening helping in the garden while luke fixed our irrigation. oliver weeded the garden beds & fed the goat while i harvested cilantro & onions for dinner. three is such a fun age!
our herb garden looks better than ever this season. i hope to make a few batches of pesto for freezing soon!
it's just about time to harvest our potatoes! that's always one of my favorite garden activities.
our tomato plants are dripping with heirlooms! i am so looking forward to a homegrown tomato, but for now we're harvesting handfuls of tiny cherry tomatoes warm & ripe from the vine.
last week i also managed to plant a smaller variety of zinnias for accents in bouquets. next week we will harvest garlic!
i am just so grateful for this time of year spent outdoors sweating & working among the bright colors of the harvest.
and for these two who make the june garden even happier! happy summer solstice!
what is happening in your june garden? please share!
