State of the Garden: June 28, 2016

Looks so good over here. Elders still blooming, orienpet lillies and gladiolas starting to open, zinnias popping up. That one massive volunteer sunflower. I had to fence off the flower patch with tposts and twine bc the guy who mows our grass thinks every
Morning garden walk with neighbor's cat; she likes to hide in between the tomato cages. That volunteer dill is almost my height and smells so good. #garden2016

Two weeks of hot hot heat and the garden is bigger and busier than it was in July last year. Everything is thriving, despite being planted weeks later than years past. The neighbor's cat comes over to walk through the garden with me every morning. Zinnias, gladiolas, lilies, elder, borage, milkweed are all blooming. There's volunteer dill that is almost my height. I've successfully grown radishes for the first time in 6 years. The raspberry canes are full of berries, but nearly impossible to pick because that area of the yard is overgrown. We're supposed to be getting a fence along the back this summer and my plan is to separate and move all the berry canes once that happens.
