The Garden As of June 1, 2014

Here are some photos of the garden and some flowers. Spring is here and it's roared in with a lot of green leaves; the trees have all unfurled in the past couple of weeks, the perennial flower bed is ready to burst with blooms. This all happens, as it does in New England, very, very fast. But the raised beds are just getting started.

Here they are. On the right: the 2 smaller beds: tomatoes in the foreground, lettuce in the background. More tomatoes in the larger box on the left. The tomatoes were planted today.

The other boxers are not ready yet. That's weed cloth over the beds.

Here are a few shots of some of other plants and flowers ….

The top of the rose went all woody and dead, so I clipped it back. Below is all of the new goeth. It's about a foot tall now. That yellow thing in the background is a banana peel. I put banana peels down there for fertilizer. Laugh. Go ahead! But it works.

And there's next winter's wood to chop:
