Sometimes I spend a lot of time trying to get the pictures placed where I want them, and Blogger just does NOT want to cooperate. Well the issue is with trying to put them side by side. I don't have the patience tonight, so they are just going to going to be stacked vertically.
The basil is coming along nicely and the second true leaves are there
The lettuce mix is really shooting up, and some of it is way too tightly planted. Going to have to figure out a better way to sow the seeds more evenly. Made up 8 bags of salad mix with lettuce, arugula and kale to take to the market. Could have done more, but since it is a long weekend, it is hard to know how busy it will be tomorrow.
Here's the arugula. Made up 10 bags of that.
The broccoli is developing little heads. It took a beating the other day with the wind, and has gone from them all standing up nice and straight to many of them leaning at jaunty angles.
In reality these carrots are only a couple of inches high
The potatoes are really filling out
A couple of Delphiniums. For some reason they wanted to be side by side
And a close up of the purple one
The double red Peonies are gorgeous, and are much redder than they look in these photos. The rain and wind really is hard on them. The big heads fill up with water and the weight drags them down.
A really lovely bearded Iris
I love this shot. A Nelly Moser Clematis
We don't have any lambs, but we have Lamb's Ears
This poor giant Hosta took a beating in the wind. You can see all the maple leaves scattered on the lawn behind.
The more compact Hostas fared much better
Lady's Mantle. Love how it holds the rain drops.
And what you've all been waiting for................ the very rare Wyndson Farm Buttercup. Ask really nicely, and add in the appropriate bribe, and I might consider giving you a root. Act fast though, they'll be gone before you know it!
My original blurb is below. This blog was started to show some of our customers where their food is coming from. But...since there aren't actually many of our customers reading it, and just because I wanted to... this blog now is all over the map. Lots of dog stuff, places we go, things we do, and of course gardening and animal stuff, and whatever else I feel like rambling on about.
