We had frost several nights last week and I put out tomatoes this weekend. I have had frost as late as June 16; none of the tender plants get set out until June 1, with lots of covering and uncovering going on. My first crop of rhubarb is finished and in the freezer, my strawberries are in full bloom, blueberries have lots of blossoms, raspberries only today began to show blossom color. Sage grows to almost shrub size and very healthy.

We had little rain in April or May, but downpours this past week. Our farmers suffer from wet alfalfa and hay. I envy you rosemary people ... can't grow it here, except as a annual.

The neighbor kids arrived en mass this long weekend loving to run the many paths and munch on herbs scattered throughout the beds. They represent the garden is coming alive and we play all summer long until school starts in the fall. We watch the baby birds begin to fledge, they love playing with the worms, gently, in the compost. My little mouse family lives in one of my planter boxes and we get to peek at them if we are very quiet.

I have a Summer Solstice celebration every year and we, my friends and I, are preparing to acknowledge all the wonderful gifts the Earth gives us freely; we avoid our vigorous discussions about the role of human action on the degradation of the Earth. This is a celebration of joy and gratitude.

Thanks so much Daniel! I worked hard for it.

Don't forget sweet potatoes, Vidalia onions, okra, collards... I'm salivating. I miss Southern food! I haven't had a good sweet potato pie since I left the South.

Heh. Maybe we should have a support group for people who should be spending more time in their garden, and less on the computer.

I really appreciate all the photos people post of their gardens and plants. I'm a bit of a plant fanatic, so I try to limit my burbling to fellow horticulturalists.

Oh, and I got my Extension Master Gardener badge the other day. If you live in the 50 US states and three Canadian provinces with EMGs, I highly recommend picking their brains for free information.

Daniel, I'm glad to find this group. This year is the first year I have begun to be serious about gardening. My doctor and wife said I needed something to get me out of the house and away from the computer (I wonder why). I might not get to participate much, but I'll be reading.

Great! Now I'll get myself cloned so I can participate more.

Daniel, how would you feel about extending topics here to include anything to do with homesteading? I'd love to read/talk about bees, and since about half of my few neighbors have turned out to be pains in the arse, I don't care what they think. I'd also love to talk about homebrew, as we have been discussing making mead.

And... I've been lobbying for sheep or goats, so that we don't have to mow this ridiculous amount of yard. I don't mind ignoring Fence Would Make Better Neighbors' wishes on some things, but I don't want to upset the good neighbors, who seem to feel that a large tract of land being cut down to its nubs is important.

So many proposed projects, so little time.

Hey Daniel I'm not much of a gardener, but our backyard looked very beautiful this morning and I just thought you folks were the ones to share it with.
