Summer solstice garden
Happy summer solstice! Today is the longest day of the year, and we've been enjoying it outdoors from sunrise this morning all the way through until sunset. Here are some photos of our garden, which is finally coming alive with the warm, humid weather and extra rain we've had this week. We had a little set back (especially the basil, zucchini, eggplant and peppers) in the first week of June with unexpected late frost, but now it looks like everything has revived and is picking up growing speed. Snow peas are almost ready to harvest, fava beans are forming, tomatillos are flowering, and lettuce round 3 is almost ready to harvest with four more trays of new seedlings all sprouting and soon ready to transplanting out!
