June 30, 2015 Veggy Garden Gallery

The gallery doesn’t capture everything, but it shows a June garden that is a bit behind due to cool temperatures and a long rainy period.  This was the first year that I have provided steady cover for the kale, preventing destructive nibbling by flea beetles. Last year rabbits jumped the chicken wire fence to get the spinach so I tucked it away with the kale inside the enclosure that holds up the cover.  Another first was the use of landscaping plastic to warm up the soil for the summer and winter squashes which, given the unusually cool temperatures, will hopefully  be an advantage. I haven’t done a month end record like this before so I am excited to compare the pictures that I will take at the end of July!

  1. What a crop… what love and dedication! I have romantic notions of a vegetable patch and herb garden but find myself not quite enjoying the dirt… πŸ™‚ I have not fully given up… only time will tell.

    1. Thanks for dropping by to see my garden. Have you tried indoor herbs ? It wasn’t my entry point — I think being outdoors is part of the attraction for me–but it could be for you …😊😊
