In My Garden June 2 2017
It’s that time again. I love following gardening blogs and it’s easy to find them when you leave your link in a comment. Leave a link, I’ll visit your blog and leave a comment. Let’s pull together a new gardening community. I will have a LOT to share this year between the newly redone high tunnel and the perennial gardens. How about it? Care to join me? Link back here to tell your readers where to get started. ( In My Garden 2017 at the link.garden june 2 2017). You can find the details for
In The High Tunnel
I neglected my seedlings this year. They’re healthy but young and small so I bought a half dozen Jet Star (average red tomoato) and a half dozen Roma (paste). I should have gotten peppers so I’ll go back next week for them. garden june 2 2017
Summer squash and zucchini. I’m missing one plant to the chickens that figured out how to get in through the opening in the back. We’ll fix that this weekend.
The mess it is today. I still have a lot of work to do.
Herbs in the High Tunnel and Outdoors
Rosemary, purchased in the produce department of the grocery store. It’s a little shell shocked from transplanting. It went from the climate-steady house to the rising and falling temps in the high tunnel. It will recover.
Chives. The original plant was my Mum’s. Lemon balm. It’s almost time to make Lemon Balm Sugar Cookies!
Bee Balm. There are five or six plants between two gardens.
Broadleaf Sage. There’s another in the high tunnel, last year’s plant that over wintered well without cover.
We’ve done a lot of work in the perennial gardens. Two are finished after digging up, moving around, planting new and spreading 2,000 pounds of mulch. Next up in the perennial department, digging up grass in the back yard to expand a foundation (up against the foundation) perennial garden I started last year.
Johnny Jump-Ups. I planted the first plants several years ago. They’ve naturalized, the colors change, and they’re spreading out on their own. Eventually I’ll put some out to make room for different perennials but for now they’re filling space nicely.
Tiny Invader Asiatic Lily
The foundation perennial garden behind the house. It’s a start… I’ll add to it this year. garden june 2 2017
