The cucumbers are growing like crazy, over in the salad bed. And the lettuces are amazing.
This is the edamame in the forefront, and the potatoes behind them. 2 separate garden beds, but so big and growing that they're starting to kinda melt together, lol. Looks like a sea of green. The edamame still have a ways to go, but the potatoes are flowering like crazy.
Isn't my bee balm delightful ? I love the bright colors.
Beautiful, fragrant elderflowers. I'm going to harvest some this week and make elderflower cordial, which you can make a soda type drink with. I may also make a few jars of elderflower and vanilla jam, if I can find the recipe.
I have a lot of lilies in my yard, and these are one of my favorites. They're big and thick and sunshine yellow. I have them planted i the front yard, around the bird bath and around the post of a bird feeder too.
Lots of joyful daylilies around. Beautiful colors...
And then this guy--all by its lonesome. An almost salmon colored lily.
Cheery pink geraniums on the back deck.
And Miss Junko Taibei, my right hand cat, resting after a hard morning of gardening.
I made a pan of cranberry almond granola bars today. I over cooked them a little. (Ok, a lot compared to the ones I made last week that were undercooked). I took them to the Solstice Celebration last Saturday and they were all gobbled up. I wanted to cook them a little more than that batch, but I went overboard. They are still very good, just crunchier and less chewy, so more crumbly. I'll come back tomorrow and post pictures and recipes for them--they are really good.
Bon Apetit and happy gardens...
