My June Garden – Flowers and Veggies

Watching your flower plants produce gorgeous blooms, and your veggies mature for harvesting, is the most rewarding experience of the hobby of gardening.

June is here, so the spring flowers are done blooming, but the perennials are filling out the void by showing off their beauty, and will continue to do so until late fall.

Also, the vegetable garden is progressing nicely and we already are able to use the lettuce, dill, sorrel, parsley, green beans, scallions, rhubarb and strawberries.

It looks like Spring in Cracow is kinder to her flowers, than ours is to mine…:-)
