We are so slow planting our garden this year.
It could have been done weeks ago and when we drive down our country road seeing the corn growing I begin to feel panicked that our garden produce will be picked last on the block.
The garlic and rhubarb didn't wait for us to get with the program.
I've been pulling rhubarb and baking and saucing and experimenting.
(as you will see soon on MGCC)
The herb part of the garden is doing well.
Cilantro, Dill, Oregano and Parsley all have taken over their fair share of space.
My regular sorrel petered out mid winter but the variegated sorrel is ready for soup.
Pink peonies anyone?
I'll start picking them now and bringing them in to force the blooms which lets me enjoy them all the longer.
The climbing hydrangea is chirping with bird nests and the flowers are beginning to open.
The fragrance will be lovely again in the evenings while we sit outside to enjoy dinners in our tent.
The grill will be fired up tonight.
Happy Victoria Day to all my Canadian friends!
