Silver Lake Garden

JUNE GARDEN: SILVER LAKE
Less time, less gardening. Fortunately, most of our garden is fairly established. Even the lettuce, chard and kale were planted in late winter. And they have all given quite a performance these past few months; each having made its way into many or our evening meals.
Roses bloom, are cut back, then return. Plants, given to us by gardener-friends, also thrive. One of them now delivers its beautiful deep blue seed bombs (our term). Bright yellow coreopsis flowers continually produce - seemingly, without end, while our gardenia brings forth a profusion of ethereally scented white blossoms.
Privets, planted only 18 months ago, have grown more than twice in height. And cherry tomatoes thrive alongside their San Marzano cousins.
This is the look of our garden in June.
