Cathy at Words and Herbs hosts The Tuesday View, inviting gardeners from all over the world to share how their gardens grow through the months and seasons. Thanks, Cathy!
The veggie garden has been offering great harvests lately. Spinach, kale, chard, lettuces, and arugula are featured at our meal times.
I’ve been freed from watering chores since the irrigation system installation. It remains a joy to pass through this arch to weed and harvest. The two climbing Hydrangea anomala petiolaris flanking the arch are entering full bloom.
The two beds of bare-root strawberries I replanted in March are filling in. Photos are from March and today.
The bed of Shuksan June-bearer strawberries requires weekly blossom pinching this first year which seems like a crime, but will add to the vigor of the young plants.
This week we are forecast to finally reach 70 degrees F, and I’ll make use of sunnier days by replanting a couple of raised beds. The cucurbit hills planted in the past couple of weeks are slow to take off due to chilly temps. Hopefully we’ll enjoy the cukes, squashes, and maybe even a sugar pumpkin by first frost!
