For documentation, I took a shot of the raised beds yesterday. Since I've been posting the progression of the beds since March 1st of this year, I was going to show you the comparison of June 1st with the previous three months. But, truth to tell, there isn't actually much difference between last month's picture and yesterday's.
Such visual confirmation of just how disappointing, both heat-wise and moisture-wise, the start of this year's gardening season has been. First we dealt with the extreme lack of moisture, and then this last week we had so much rain that I still haven't been able to get into the field garden.
I pulled this picture taken on June 1st a few years ago from my picture folders.
And this is the picture from yesterday. Pretty graphically illustrates we haven't had the best start to this gardening season. It will get better though. As a dyed-in-the-wool gardener (with a bit of my super-stubborn astrological sign of Taurus thrown in), I still have faith that all will turn out well.
