And it's also my garden. The June garden, in June, as it were.
So here is a tour.
I took these photos this evening, to give you a little tour. So come on, grab a glass of wine, let me show you!!!
And yes I've turned into a garden geek.
Because, really, I'm in love with our garden this year. It's nearly perfectly what I envisioned that first winter here. We had moved in in September and I spent hours staring out the window over that long winter, imagining what we would do to this desolate looking front yard. And this summer. Here it is. We just need some peony bushes now. Maybe a rose bush too.
Seriously, it's going to be glorious out there in a month. I can't wait.
And lest you think this is braggy braggy sounding, which I hope it doesn't, let us never forget this poor little gardening experiment I endeavored upon just a few short years ago... http://www.junecleaverinyogapants.com/2010/09/adventures-in-urban-gardening.html
Ha ha! Oh my June.
So, hey. Enjoy!
The other end of the medicinal garden. With chamomile, lavender, peppermint and dill.
center of the garden. Cilantro , which reseeded itself, dill, which did the same, and oregano and thyme which survived the winter, and new sage and basil.
Bean pole teepee, and below the cucumber, cabbage and potato beds, leading to another teepee.
The strawberries are producing so well!
This is today's pick!!
The bean pole teepee at the far end of the garden, with two blueberry plants nearby. Also planted sunflowers in this corner.
I've planted all kinds of other flower beds this year too, thanks especially to our generous neighbor who always has clumps of this or that to get rid of. This bed has yarrow and zinnias and spearmint and bee balm and sunflowers and Black-eyed Susans.
Do you see the little shed back there! That's the chicken "tractor" dada made to house our meat chicks that are getting big!! We feel like real homesteaders.
