our garden border in full bloom

July 13, 2015

Despite all the rain that has caused much delay in dry hay making, the farm is beautiful! The pastures and hay fields are in full bloom. Bees and hummingbirds are flitting everywhere gathering nectar. The blue birds and martins are nurturing babies and teaching fledglings to fly. Everything is lush and green except the ripening grain and that is a beautiful golden brown. It is simply a breath-taking sight at least for this farmer 😮

Our garden, late planted and stalled by all the rain is really starting to produce. The squash, onions, cukes and raspberries are in high gear. The swiss chard has been wonderful and now spinach is ready for the first harvest. Our green beans are showing the first sign of blossoming while carrots nearby are showing strong tops of lush feathery green. Hot peppers are ready to pick while the rhubarb and strawberries are fading fast.

The lawn is staying green and still needs mowed about every fourth day. This is good because I sure don’t want to have a day without something to do! The best part of all, is that our flower beds are in full bloom. Most of our flowers are perennials. They take a while to get big and strong, but what a show they make! Growing them is a very good thing to do.
