Well, I finally finished one thing, I finished weeding and tidying up the flowerbed along the driveway. It was a hard job because some of the perennials had gotten WAY too large so I had to divide them. I didn't take a photo because it wouldn't look impressive to you...the plants look a little butchered. To me it looks beautiful because I put a lot of thought into how it will look next year in bloom. I moved a bunch of them around.... a foot this way, a foot that way...I think plants should have wheels so they are easier to move!
The Delphinium is blooming....
I have two colors....bright blue...
And this amazing light blue....
The Foxtail Lilies are starting to bloom too!
A male zucchini blossom opened up and I just HAD to have it for lunch!
Stuffed with cheese of course! Delicious!!! And I found 3 carrots that were large enough to taste!
I had some customers today.....some peas were picked....all in all it was a good day!
THE U-Pick GARDEN will be closing August 20th. This will be the last year the garden will be open to the public. Next year I'll be operating as a CSA, supplying about 20 regular customers with weekly boxes. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years, but it's time to try something new.
