Journal - First half of June
I picked a few raspberries this morning and some broccoli. I put my broccoli out earlier than last year so I was hoping it wouldn't be bitter like before but what I sampled was pretty bitter. : ( Maybe I didn't water it enough. The raspberries were good at least.
I got out early and watered this morning since it's going to be hot. Wish spring had lasted a little longer.
Verbena bonariensis and 'Homestead Purple' is starting to bloom. Also a couple coneflowers opening up. Hydrangeas, clematis, penstemon, nepeta, salvia May Night, salvia darcyi, dianthus, purple poppy mallow, rose campion, roses, Asiatic lilies and salvia greggi. Sounds like a lot when I list it all but my yard is mostly green. I need more flowers.
My Orangeglow watermelons have true leaves now and I have some other watermelon and honeydew seeds soaking and will plant those tomorrow. Last year I planted kind of late and it was cool in late summer so they didn't do well at all. I hope they're better this year.
