Well, we’re back from our vacation. We had a lovely time and can’t wait until our next vacation in a year! In the mean time, we will continue to enjoy every sunny evening we get, and make the most of each weekend.
So I thought I’d do a quick photo post on what’s happening in our garden. Of course, as soon as I leave, everything starts to pop up! Maybe I should stay away more often, ha!
Our cilantro on the porch- nothing better than the fresh stuff! YUM!
Our wild morning glories I’m trying to teach to climb the stairs.
Chives and horseradish
Our sunflower bed (there’s only 6 left I think eeep!) that’s being shared by some of our morning glories
Turnips doing well, here’s hoping they continue to grow!
The start of our delicate carrots. They are so tiny, I fear covering them with some light hay. Their cover may have to wait.
And the rhubarb. It’s growing alright, but it’s fighting a leaf spot disease. I read on one site that stressed plants are heavily susceptible to them, which I believe seeing the plant barely survived it’s transplant! I don’t dare to cut off all the leaves right now, I really want to encourage it to grow. But come fall, when it frosts, I’ll be sure to trim everything down to the ground and destroy the clippings. That’s all I have read I can do. Anyone else have any information they can share with me??? Should I risk killing the plant by cutting everything off now, or should I wait, in hopes it will continue to grow and risk possible death anyways??? Any ideas?
