Garden Growth, June 2016

Here’s a few snapshots of the garden growth this first true summer we are at our property, it’s so exciting to see everything developing. Even if it is slowly, were thrilled to see it all come together and get to the part where we’ve finished everything that we have to do, and were at the parts we really just want to do…but is that ever really the case with To-Do lists?
They never end!

Our suspected Quince tree, just loaded with potential fruit!

Our Yellow Plum tree is quite crowded again this year too, it must have liked the small amount of pruning I did last fall

Our Delphinium blooming beautifully, I absolutely love this flower and so do the bees!

Drying our Silver Thyme for over winter use. We are fortunate enough to have fresh thyme year round, but there is only so much for use as it's growth is almost entirely stunted through the winter so instead I dry it for use on roasted potatoes, etc.

The garden rows, slowly we'll be building our soil here in this patch to grow wonderful fertile food. For now, we've done raised beds using bought garden soil.
