Six on Saturday – June 26, 2021


thanks to the Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday https://thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com/2021/06/26/six-on-saturday-26-06-2021/

There wasn’t much need for watering the garden on Saturday. We’ve had quite a bit of rain and the forecast for the the next seven days is calling for rain pretty much every day.

I spent most of my time dead heading some of the flowers and pulling weeds.

I was delighted to see that the tiger lilies that Dad planted last spring have returned and are now in full bloom.

In the raised beds the lettuce and the kale are thriving but none of the bean seeds or sweet pea seeds sprouted. I’m beginning to think that the deluxe triple mix that I added to the beds was far from deluxe.

I’m happy to see that the tomato plants and the peppers are also thriving in the their containers and that the raspberry canes are starting to produce some fruit. I hope we can enjoy some of the berries before the birds and squirrels feast on them.
