The cold spring is behind us, the bite is finally gone from the air, and my garden is growing at breakneck speed; it must be June!
Most of my vegetables and fruit are lush and healthy, like my peas,
But the Kohlrabi is pathetic – germination was almost non-existent. I’ve waited a month and have 3 spindly seedlings, so I seeded the rest of the packet in there – now they’ll probably all grow! I’ll let you know…
My strawberries bloomed furiously
And are now setting a bumper crop
The raspberries look better than last year, though I suspect poor drainage is still an issue.
And my thornless loganberries are abuzz with bees
There are roughly 100 peaches on my young peach tree – if even half of them develop I’ll be thrilled.
In the greenhouse I have peppers and tomatoes setting up
And my egg factories are growing sleek and sassy, I wonder when they’ll start to lay?
