The flowers have barely even bloomed.
The few flowers that have bloomed aren't even pretty.
My trellis probably won't even get covered this year the way it's going. So much for dreams of Farmer's Markets. Maybe next year.
My attempt at starting some herbs look all right.
This should be a tub of chamomile.
But then again I have been known to nurture weeds before.
The couple of tomatoes that have turned orange are all rotting on the vine.
Something is eating my cabbage.
The onions are yellowish and sickly.
We have a few sunflowers, but nothing compared to the ones we normally have that overtake the garden with their towering beauty.
After planting the potatoes in the garden I still had lots left so we threw them on top of the ground up by the pasture fence and covered them with chicken wire then with wet hay from Russell's hayfield. They are growing better than the ones in the ground in my garden. The theory with the chicken wire first is that this fall we will flip the chicken wire over and not have to go digging for potatoes. Seems to be working swell so far.
The other garden area that is flourishing is down by the old chicken coop where I put in some extra seeds planning that they could grow up the old fence.
