How does my garden grow? June 2017 edition

My garden is definitely doing better than last year, with almost the same amount of mostly neglect. The cool rainy weather has, I think, been mostly good. I was late getting everything in.


It’s peony season! They bloomed earlier than I expected, no ants made an appearance! There are still some buds today.

My very ignored hydrangea in the front garden is looking good. It didn’t bloom at all last year, so this makes me happy.


We’re improving the container and raised bed situation. So far, I planted future gazpacho, pickles, leeks, and roasted radishes.

I need to thin those radishes!

In theory I’ll have salad too but I have a terrible track record getting any lettuces to grow.
