Early July Garden

I'm in Sacramento now for training but here are some pictures I took on the Friday before I left.

Morning tea was after my run and some harvesting. Coop is an excellent book. I was reading parts aloud to Q and he decided that he has to read the whole thing to himself.

Here's the side bed. I need to pull out most of the calendula and lettuce and sidedress the corn when I get home. We've got some calendula drying. Apparently it's an excellent ingredient in a soothing cream after the dried flowers have been infused into oil. I found a recipe that calls for beeswax too so we could use lots of our own production.

Potatoes (need to be mulched)

The perennial forest

The peas are taller than me.

I built this new trellis for the Bingo beans.

The asparagus have finally done something. Currently, it looks like they're all alive.

From front to back:
Misono Green soy, black eyed peas (very small), fava beans, and the Bingos

The carrot bed that I replanted twice and refused to grow more than 4 carrot seedlings was replanted with Envy soy, which is doing much better. (I did leave the four carrots and planted around them. They're looking nice so far.)

Everything looks great! I am particularly envious of your book, tea and fruit picture. I would love a morning like that! :)
