End of the Month View: May

All things seem possible in the garden at the end of May. Harry and I have been busy with laying out paths, setting the string line for planting rows of garden goodness. It is a sweet time of year we enjoy together. I find a deep fulfilling satisfaction working the land with love together.

Petunias are potted up and setting first blooms. Daffodils are through with blooming and Sweet William is growing strong. We will have our first garden salad soon. Strawberry blossom bursts show the beginnings of berries. 

The blue barrel is full of nettle brewing into tea for a nourishing watering. I plan to add the comfrey to brew with it. Rhurbarb is ready to sent out it prehistoric giant flowers. We like to let it bloom in its magnificence. 

Harry mulched the onions and leeks. The corn, carrots, beets, turnips and scallions have emerged. Parsnips and parsley are planted and the tax day peas are going strong!

There are still Zinnia and tomatoes under the row cover.  It’s been a bit chilly still, but they are going out too!

We will be putting in beans, squashes, Brussels sprouts, cabbage and broccoli this week.
