"And the LORD will continually guide you, And satisfy your desire in scorched places, And give strength to your bones; And you will be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail" -- Isaiah 58:11
Oooo... These days in the garden right now... It's just the best! The lovely summery days continue. Though we've had some much needed rain now, which we're so thankful for, as it was getting too dry. We've been harvesting the first of our radishes and strawberries! And it looks like we're going to have another great year with the raspberries. And we have apples just starting to turn rosy! We've not had many apples in recent years, so this is exciting, and I hope they will reach maturity. I would love to make apple butter from our own apples this year. The potato plants are bursting out of their raised bed...must be the coffee ground fertilizer we're giving them! Sugar snap peas are coming along nicely. Oh, but we did have some disappointment with our mini cucumbers. They got a disease, became stunted in growth, leaves turned yellow, and, sadly, we had to pull them up. Not sure if we'll try to sow cucumber seeds in another spot, but we'll see...There's a lot of plum tomatoes on the grow... And the lavender is going crazy! We have about ten lavender plants now. We let the bees, butterflies and other critters have the first cut. And then by August I take the second cutting for drying and processing. Everyone gets a bit. Oh, and the The Fairy roses are blooming... Such a blessing, is our little patch here!
What's growing in your patch or where you are?!
