Welcome to the second 2016 visit to my vegetable garden—all photos were taken in the last days of June. I can’t show every angle so I select shots that I think may be of interest. June was a dry month and I thought growth was slow. Yet when I compared pictures from this time last year, I discovered that some parts of the garden are farther along. I need patience and gained perspective.
I start with the beans. The tall bamboo poles (on my blog masthead) are a statement of growth. I love how pole bean vines wind upwards.
The zucchini plant is growing rapidly. In the bottom left corner: yellow dill umbrella flowers and a single calendula flower bloom. In the upper right corner: bean plants.
Here is a closeup of a calendula flower between the garlic plants. About five years ago, I planted dill and calendula—they have self-seeded ever since.
The cucumber plants are growing:
Peppers are starting to show. They emerge from tiny star flowers.
I harvested three beets today.
Peas emerge from delicate white flowers. They are flourishing and will be finished soon.
Vegetables that didn’t make it to this photo post are winter squash, onions, spinach, lettuce, and broccoli (a story in itself). Thanks for visiting!
