Summer!

June 30, 2013

Summer’s in the garden.  Peas are producing, carrots, beets and beans are coming in, there’s already a couple tomatoes showing and I snipped our first cucumber today.  And the lettuce has seriously bolted.  As referenced in a prior post, my new beds have taken up residence in part of the driveway near the raspberry / blackberry beds.  Thankfully I have neighbors who are cool with the occasional brief drive around them into the median between our houses.  And I put casters underneath them so I can roll them here and there if needed.

    Looking awesome, Kevin! I love the idea of plants on wheels, I like to imagine them on an adventure down Maplewood ave when you aren’t lookin 🙂 We bought a FEW plants at the City Market this weekend and potted them in containers, nothing too exciting (a cherry tomato, a paprika pepper plant and Thai basil) plus some flowers for our flower boxes. My Mom wanted to start teaching G about gardening, he LOVES the daily water hose routine 🙂
