And that's not a bad thing since it means the plants are actually growing and producing.
The peach colored Asiatic Lilies are starting to bloom. This is the one with twelve flower buds. They may not be edible, but they do feed the soul.
I replanted this bed one week ago with radishes, lettuces, spinach, Scarlet Frill and arugula. Most everything sprouted within two days.
Usually the red cabbage heads up before the green ones in my garden. Not so this year. The green ones are ready to harvest while the reds are just starting to form heads. We've eaten one of the green heads. The outer leaves had some holes but after peeling those off, I found a lovely, solid, insect-free head.
I'm so happy with the Scarlet Runner Beans on the hoop trellis. The vines are blossoming prolifically and are close to meeting over the top.
Both the green and yellow bush beans are finally shaping up. I've never seen such large leaves on the plants. Some are 8" long and measure 6" across. And, worry thee not that all the strength of the plants has gone into the leaves. There are blossoms on them, too.
This sweet rose bush is upwards of twenty years old and until last year spent about fifteen years in the woods near the L.P. gas tank. (Long story.) We resurrected it last fall and planted it in one of the berm boxes up against the house. We were pleased as punch it actually survived the winter and now is producing lovely little roses. The blooms almost seem to glow. The picture is straight out of the camera with no added coloration.
Additional parts of the garden are not shown in this post. More to come later. (I don't want to jinx it, but . . . I have dill that is growing! Shhhh. Barring something unforeseen should happen to it, I may actually have fresh dill to use in making my dill pickles this year!)
