View from the garden

The flower garden has exploded—with absolutely no help from me. Thanks to the mild weather, a week of rain, and the chickens, all the perennials are growing beautifully. So are the weeds, so I will have to get out there soon.

Cherisse has been planting our Fedco order all week, using one of the garden beds as a temporary storage.

Many of the remaining beds are filled with seedlings (planted or purchased), and our strawberries.

We’ve had a few asparagus with many more coming (although slugs have been a problem).

And next week is the Casey Farm plant sale, where I will get most of our tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and herbs…and many unexpected things. The busy season has truly begun!
