A June Garden

I don’t know how it  got to be June 16 already! We just returned from vacation visiting the grands and I realized I’m overdue on providing updates on the garden. I don’t know where time goes!

I’m delighted with how the tomatoes are coming along. It’s almost hard to believe that I started each one of these beauties from seed. The Red Delicious Cherry tomatoes are in the foreground; you can’t really tell from this picture but there are flowers already!

The peas are doing very well. I already added the second piece of the cages we’re using for them to climb.

The peas are starting to flower too.

The beets are coming along.

As are the carrots. I love the lacy look of them, don’t you?

The kale is coming along.

As are the different varieties of lettuce I have planted.

The beans are doing nicely. I’m looking forward to seeing a wall of purple pod pole beans here later in the summer.

The peonies are all but finished. I did manage to find this beauty still in full bloom though.

The weather here in the Pacific Northwest has not been very summer-like but the garden seems to be coming along despite the cool weather. Some warm sunny days would be nice though. For the garden and for this grandma.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm here most mornings with a photo and a few words about ordinary extraordinary things and, sometimes, thin places where faith intersects.
  1. […] Today, I’ve been out in the garden today taking stock of how everything is doing. You can check out the updates over on my gardening blog, A Grandma’s Garden. […]

  2. It’s true. Here in western Oregon where I live, it’s been fairly rainy and mild but the plants seem to love it and are just growing like gangbusters. Everything looks equally happy in your garden. I don’t mind the rain.
