What’s in Bloom? – June 30th

Our first Lily of the season.
Evening Primlsrose.

The Evening Primrose are taking a beating. We put the bird feeder on a tree branch overhead. The squirrels and chipmunks routinely feed from this feeder and will then jump down onto the flowers. Naughty little animals. Tsk, tsk.

Our main vegetable garden

Let’s not forget the vegetables. We have them in a few spots but this is the largest. My wife put down a biodegradable landscaping paper to keep the weeds down around the plants and then filled in with mulch around the borders. I took this on Friday and it’s already changed quite a bit.

Haymarket


Since the 1830’s, this has been the site of an open air food market. It can vastly undercut the prices at the grocery store. Individuals, families and restaurants can be seen buying food here on Fridays and Saturdays. Here are a few images from last Friday.
