Mid June garden tour, part 2
Peas are just now blossoming. Behind them are the pole beans, just planted on Sunday (and bush beans, too, not shown).
The herb bed and cucurbit area. I removed the row covers for the photo shoot.
Costata Romanesca zucchini, Futsu Black and Butternut winter squashes.
New England Pie pumpkin and cukes
Melons (small plants in front), and yellow crookneck and patty pan squashes.
On the other side of the fence seen in the above photo is the blueberry hedge. Right now, it is looking like a good berry year :-)
Heading back to the house is the soon to be planted zinnia and cutting flower bed on the East border, in front of a row of young lilacs. (Zinnias and other annual flowers planted yesterday).
On the west border, under the flowering crab, is the new-ish shade garden. It is in need of some weeding, edging, and mulching.
Looking toward the house is the holly bed on the left, and the deck bed on the right. Both are in a bit of a quiet phase right now, but more flowers are on the way. The hard-pruned grapevine is growing, and in need of some trellis training.
Next, a tour of the shady front yard.
