6.20.11 Garden Update: June Bloom
I've been so busy with my hands in the dirt, I haven't had a chance to share with you everything that's coming to life in the garden. After a ton of rain, a couple of sweltering days and lots more rain, we've had a few temperate days with a decent amount of sun that have finally given the plants just what they need to flourish. G is still crabbing around the yard with lightning speed and a ferocious determination to do more than his fair share. He is a sight to behold. And so is the garden. Without further ado, my friends, here are a few highlights of what's busting out in June. (Above is an incredibly happy tangle of sage and lavender, both of them highly fragrant and sprouting little purple flowers.)
I'd be remiss if I didn't give a shout-out to Silver Heights Farm (they also have a stand at the Union Square farmers market in New York City) and to Catskill Native Nursery for their bountiful and thoughtful selections of organic and native plants and heirloom varieties. Here's to your toes in the dirt and your head in the clouds!
