Cecropia Moths rested quietly on my flag all morning.
The grands came to see them and study them.
My flower garden is overflowing with larkspur, poppies, and blue flax.
The peonies are not quite ready to pop yet.
The lettuce is ready to pick and so are the French Breakfast Radishes.
The radishes are mild, yet peppery and crisp!
I replanted some green beans today.
One row is up, but they look rather sad; and the other row is mostly missing so I hope they'll fill in and provide us a nice little crop for two.
The potato plants are pushing up taller and taller.
I need to give them another layer of mulch.
This is my new experiment. I put down some old shingles I found in the barn to smother weeds and give me a nice pathway to walk on. This hillside is really a weedy patch, so I'm trying to keep the weeds down as much as I can. You can see squash and pumpkin plants and a few stray potatoes.
Chives have taken over a corner of the flower bed and I am so glad of it. I like to use the herb for cooking and as a garnish, but I also think they are the prettiest flower.
"Earth is crammed with heaven
And every bush aflame with God
But only those who see take off their shoes."
