(More) Poppies and Sweetpeas

P&S The garden is going wild. Most of the California and Icelandic poppies are finished, the red poppies all still in full glory and the Shirley Double Mix poppies are starting to bloom. The sweetpeas are bursting with fragrance, and the first of the cosmos are starting. Wave after wave of nasturtium and calendula are coming into bloom only to be consumed in salads. The flowering parts of the yard are a crazy mess…just the way I like it.

And for veggies: The favas are almost finished; I think we have one more large serving. Lettuce, kale and chard are still growing like crazy, and I’ve been pushing bags of kale on my colleagues. In the last day or so, some of the beets started pushing their tops up out of the soil – whats that about? I was going to harvest and roast them all this evening until The Man pointed out that a skunk is lurking outside the back door.

I was going to blog about a friend who has a gutter garden as well as a pallet garden, but that will have to wait until I have some more pictures from her…

This blog is my online journal to keep track of what is going on in different parts of the garden, different times of the year.
