From commentor Lapassionara:
I don’t know what the little white flowers [in the top photo] are, but they really cheered me up when they appeared.
Here north of Boston, we went from a moist English-style spring to very dry summer just about overnight. The unusually lush roses are gone, but the daylilies are suddenly bursting into bloom (too early! I want their bright colors in late July / early August!). My hopeful sweet-pea transplants have swooned; I’d like to believe they’ll come back in the fall, but I know the odds aren’t good. Most of the beds look like untended garbage, but at least they’re lush garbage…
On the other hand, 18 tomato plants are a lot easier to keep up with than 24-plus. It let me align the rows of rootpouches so they can all get a little more sun, too. So we’ve already harvested a handful of Chocolate Sprinkles, there are Cherokee Purple and Ramapo fruits starting to swell, and most of the vines are blossoming, so that’s something to look forward to every time I go out there.
I need more pictures, unless I’ve missed an email — if you sent me some that haven’t appeared, remind me!
What’s going on in your garden(s), this week?
