The Garden at Twilight

I'm home.  Jet-lagged and fatigued, but home and unpacked.  The trees are sighing outside my window and the sky is deep grey - I think a storm is coming.  See the raised beds from my window?

The white disc on the tree is one of my washlines.

My husband pulled the last of the lettuce tonight to make space for a few more tomato plants.  A conoisseur would say the lettuce was bitter and bolting, but we are jubilant:  $2 for a packet of seeds that provided microgreens in March and abundant salads for April, May and a little bit of June. 

The green beans, nasturtiums, and raspberries are up, the dill heads are forming.  There are two pepper plants.  We now have a total of 15 tomato plants.  May they all grow as well as the lettuce!

Home---there's nothing like it.

I want to hear stories from your travels. Please?

It looks like you have a big tree near your vege garden. Do you get much sun for your veges?

Anon, yes, we have a big maple and there's a big walnut tree too. Our plants get strong morning sun and a little late afternoon sun. Best for spring and fall crops, but our summer things do OK.

JJ, I will tell YOU stories. But they're outside the scope of this blog.
