It’s early June in the garden, with traveling, it’s exciting to come home and see what’s popping in the perennial garden and what’s ready to harvest in the veggie garden!
Of course, there were lots of weeds! Weeding is therapy, right?
This is the first year I’ve had success growing spinach and it just went crazy and bolted while I was traveling. Bummer, I missed the harvest and treat of growing my own. I invited several friends to stop by and pick their own so it didn’t go to waste. Sharing, hands down, is one of my favorite things about gardening.
The broccoli bloomed and I miss the harvest, but check out the lettuce!
Aeroponic Tower Garden Lettuce
Edible front yard garden. Needs a little weeding, ya think?
Corn. This is my first year at attempting corn. My neighbor was taught by his father who is 93 and still gardening. Apparently, starting in milk cartons early is the way to go with the short growing season in Colorado. I’m not having much success.
Moon and stars watermelon.
Perennial blooms in the June garden.
Allium past blooms, but still adding texture and color to the garden.
Chocolate Flower. Smells best in the morning and like Hershey’s Chocolate.
Oriental Poppy. The poppies are my favorite!
