First zucchini and
first maters- Sungold
(plant purchased from store)
Can hardly wait....
The Alpine Strawberries
Black Raspberries- my fav garden fruit
The smaller fruits have richer flavor
Lots in bloom and bumbles
parsnip flowers (covered in wasps, hoverflies, small bees, flies)
The flowers change color as they mature. The darker pink are younger and fertile- notice the pollen. The bumblebees love this rose.
Oriental Lilies and
A new Salvia for me- Amistad
from Bowood nursery
A daylily in the Biergarten
Bumbles happy at Borage
Dill coming into flower- a self-seeder
First Nicotiana in bloom in the garden
having returned from last year's roots,
which is surprising given the hard winter.
Indian pink- Spigelia
This is my biochar experiment (very unscientific with my small sample size). The California Wonder bell pepper plant on the left (control) has continued to outgrow the one on the right (biochar-treatment). The left one also has a blossom.
Reuse, reduce, recycle
Closing shot- using an old (and broken)
ladder as a plant stand.
Happy Almost Summer
