Part two of Late June in the garden: Â the backyard. Â Rhubarb, beans, amaranth, garlic, pole beans, tomatoes, tomatillos, volunteer chard and sunflowers.
Raspberries in the back and side yards are still cranking out the berries. Â The side yard patch (on the left) has encroached upon the path and blueberries, columbine and dahlias (to the right). Â Ah well, I do love that wild, overgrown look to the garden.
It’s going to be a great year for elderberries. Â Both the native and Asian elderberry in our shade garden are loaded full of young fruit.
We will finally be getting apples this year! Â Six of our dozen+ young apple trees have fruit! Â And the quinces and one fig have set some fruit as well. Â So good to see our investment in perennial fruit crops begin to yield a harvest!
I hope you enjoyed the tour of our permaculture farmette. Â I will try to post a few more times this week as we hide from the summer heat. Â Stay cool!
