June seems to me to be the most challenging month for gardening. The excitement of planting and seeing things sprout and grow is over, but it is not yet time to harvest (at least for most things).
- It is colder and wetter than we would like it to be
- There is not much growth visible
- Weeds are popping up everywhere
- The harvest seems to be so far away
- Patience is needed
The home garden
|Peas are blooming|
|Zucchini (the one that was growing under a jar)|
|Broccoli and cauliflower protected from the bugs|
|Broccoli are starting to form|
|Ants eating the sunflower 🙁|
The Greenhouse is a happy place; everything is growing and ripening. The difference between outside and in the greenhouse is amazing. Here, there are some cucumbers that were planted at the same time in the greenhouse, but then I transplanted some outside since there were too many inside.
|Early tomatoes ready to harvest, mmh, delicious!|
|Lots of tomatoes: I can almost taste the salsa …|
