Garden Update

Time to share some garden highlights. The lilies have come into their own. Most of them are a simple yellow or orange and very cheery. My Easter Lilies transplanted very well and I have two clumps of them that appear to be multiplying happily. I only put in the callas this year and they are a little behind the rest and not blooming yet. The glads also look very strong and vigorous this year, but no blooms yet.

And look what we’ve been enjoying from the wilder parts of the property:Warren and Isaac race each other to see who will find a patch first because there is not enough to share. In each clump of berries, it seems only the center dark purple one is ready. The rest are deceptively red and definitely not ready to eat yet.

I’ve managed to make it to the local farmer’s market a couple times now and have been rewarded with good produce. Leaf lettuce, spinach, strawberries, and for the first time today, cucumbers. (Zukes and beets were also available for the first time today but not for me, thank you.)

Hope you are eating as well as we are,
