the garden in May
Now that the weather has finally warmed up a bit, things are starting to sprout and grow all over. The cucumber has a baby, the cilantro has its second set of leaves, the arugula needs thinning out, and more lettuces have been planted. Unfortunately, no carrots to be seen - they did not like the gloomy wet May we've had - apparently one of the wettest Mays on record. And it shows - will be sowing more carrots tomorrow. The weeds of course will grow any time of year! I should just start a chickweed farm as that's what grows best around here. Here are a few photos from around the yard/garden. One of the prettiest flowers out right now is a native columbine on the front yard - they are carnelian orange with a yellow centre, and quite tall - about 4 feet high. Oh, and happy Biological (and Biocultural) Diversity Day! Everything is connected. We are all related.
