Part two of Late June in the garden: the backyard. 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. The side yard patch (on the left) has encroached upon the path and blueberries, columbine and dahlias (to the right). Ah well, I do love that wild, overgrown look to the garden.
It’s going to be a great year for elderberries. Both the native and Asian elderberry in our shade garden are loaded full of young fruit.
We will finally be getting apples this year! Six of our dozen+ young apple trees have fruit! And the quinces and one fig have set some fruit as well. 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. I will try to post a few more times this week as we hide from the summer heat. Stay cool!
