The Gardens in June

We maintain two gardens as well various bits of other plantings.  The two are known as the side garden and the strip garden. Enjoy this glimpse, and if you are in the neighborhood sometime, feel free to stop by and help me weed.

Our side garden became more permanent with wood chip walkways and a few trellises. I’ve made a few mistakes, but it is far better than previous gardens here.

I think there will be enough for us and the rabbits.

Sweet potatoes are an experiment this year.

Wheat is a new experiment for us.  It is may not be worth our while to grow it, given the effort in threshing and milling.

It is beautiful, though.
