Tater blossom.

The garden has taken off. The peas have outgrown the fences. I’m not sure if I should try to extend them or let the vines strangle themselves, thus slowing the vines. Since I am a lazy gardener I will let nature take it’s course.

The cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and kohlrabi are taking over. We have some hot weather coming up and I hope they won’t bolt.  My experience with broccoli and cauliflower is limited, so will just have to wait and see.

The first spuds should be ready in a week and I’m looking forward to them.

It is the eve of Canada Day. The Valley is full of people wanting to celebrate, yet not sure what is acceptable or where to go. I noticed many people just wondering around town aimlessly today. Maybe we are turning into zombies with maple leaf tattoos!

      Hi Jim. Nice tattoo. Lisa and my daughters, who all have tattoos, say I should get one. I always answer, ‘you don’t put bumper stickers on a Ferrari’. You should here them scoff at my attempt at wit! 🙂

    That’s really sad about the celebrations!

    My garden’s been invaded!… by raspberries. A load of canes have sprung up in an unused corner and they’re choc-full of raspberries! They’re good too – I had a bowl of them mashed with cream yesterday – yum! 🙂

        it’s better than what was in that corner before – I don’t mind them taking over that bit of the garden. I’ll have to keep an eye on them though in case they want to travel further afield!
