Garlic coming along nicely. Scapes should be appearing soon.
I love this tree – so grand and glorious.
Look at this a red strawberry on June 9th in central New Hampshire? Yes, there were a couple yesterday too and boy were they good!
Blueberry trees loaded!
Here comes the garlic scapes!!!
Glorious Head Lettuce
Beautiful shot of the garden this morning at 5:30 a.m. What a lovely site!
Ok just finished day 2 of a 5 day weekend. Accomplished a lot today too much too list but the highlights were – eating the fresh greens from our garden (in the picture). Yesterday, we went to pick up rock dust from a MA farm – this is part of our remineralizing the land – the color was unbelievable, a pearlescent blue/green/gray – gorgeous and shimmering color – it just glowed in the garden. I’m sure the land is very happy right now.
What a gorgeous day. I was outside all day long. I can now check off the following things from my list:
- Planted the gorgeous swiss chard to the right in the picture above in the garden (about 80 plants).
- Planted 135 feet of yellow beans
- Planted 135 feet of green beans
- Planted 180 feet of cut lettuce
- Planted 240 feet of carrots
- Planted 160 feet of beets
- Not on the list but had some extra time – weeded the entire greenhouse
- Planted a flat of head lettuce
- Planted a flat of pickling cukes
- Planted a flat of Orient Express cukes (new variety this year)
- Did three loads of laundry and hung it outside to dry
- Made a new dessert recipe for supper: Rhubard Maple Toasted Bread Pudding
- Made a new recipe for supper: Greek Spinach-Asparagus-Potato Gratin
Spreading our “gold” compost onto the garden.
Tons of old fashioned rose bushes.
A very fragrant plant but not sure what it is possibly honeysuckle?
Comfrey, comfrey everywhere!
Little apples – tons of them!
Beautifully fragrant deep pink rose bush.
