With yesterday being the Summer Solstice, I felt it only fitting to spend some quality time in my gardens tending to my plants. (As if I don’t do that on a daily basis already!) I pulled weeds, picked peas, and replanted some lettuce, radishes, and beets. Yes, I know radishes and lettuce are Spring and Fall crops, but I’ve been known to throw caution to the wind and put them in the ground anyway. True they don’t like the hot summer months, but I’ve found that with a bit of love and extra watering, I’m still able to get a good harvest. Besides, I’m obsessed with growing plants and I will continue to be in my garden well through November, hopefully December, barring any serious snow. Of course my camera was in-hand, so here is what I’ve got growing on as of late.
