It’s wonderful to be home!
Quiet June mornings with the birds singing outside the window.
Sunny afternoons with blue skies and light breezes.
Laundry on the clothes line.
And weeds taking over the garden. 🙂
But the plants are doing well! Look at that cauliflower! Isn’t that exciting! Now if I only knew when to harvest it. How big should it get before I eat it?
Thankfully my plants have caught up with the ones from the Amish store. They are loving this cooler weather and all the rain!
The squash, pumpkins, watermelons and cantaloupes are just popping through. We planted them so quickly that we didn’t get them labeled – so it will be a surprise to see where everything is!
The green beans are up, the first planting of corn is up and all seventy pepper plants are in the ground. (One can never have too many tam jalapenos!)
On this week’s to-do list: plant more corn!
This is the best crop of peas I’ve had in several years! They, too, love the cool and damp weather. Of course the Amish neighbors already have blossoms on theirs and have probably had several meals of them already – but at least mine are growing!
Which is more than I can say for my herbs – but then I haven’t even got them planted yet.
Because I’m home.
I love being home.
June is such a hopeful month.
