It’s June!

Hello!  Official summer is almost here but in the meantime, signs of summer surround us – long, hot days and grass that grows faster than a BMW goes from 0 to 60.  Temperatures began to rise to the 80’s a couple weeks ago, but this morning it was 57 when we took the pups for their first walk of the day.  If only we could preserve that for the rest of the season.

Our garden efforts continue to delight and surprise us (as in – did we really manage not to kill that?):

Lettuce…

Mesclun Mix and Romaine…

and some herbs that grow on our porch…

Strawberries

In addition to enjoying the sweet, fresh berries…

…Mr. Fifty Shades experimented with some homemade strawberry ice cream…

…and some strawberry jam

Also, Mr. Fifty Shades built a square foot garden area near the house where we’ve planted tomatoes, peppers, and more lettuce

In non-gardening activities…

We installed this bird house near our house for blue birds but last year and this year, tree swallows encouraged the blue birds to move out.  Here’s the sassy new resident…

I am so weary just taking pictures of all this activity I might have to go eat a bowl of ice cream.

Until next time,

Mrs. Fifty Shades of Green Acres
