June Garden Tour

I can't believe that it has been another month already. It's the first Saturday again, so that means it is time for the monthly garden tour. Not tooting my own horn, but I rather like these side-by-side comparisions. Last month, we saw huge amounts of growth in the garden. This month, you won't see much in the way of growth, but you will see actual fruits or aging.

Please, enjoy the tour.



  1. wow! that is a lot of beds. You have a great looking garden!!

  2. How many cucumbers did you plant in hopes of pickles? I planted 12, but only got 3. That's enough for cucumbers for lunch every day, but it doesn't seem to be enough for pickles. I am hoping for pickles, too, but I guess it's wishful thinking this year.

    1. I'd be happy with 4-6 jars of pickles. I'd be ok with no relish because I can use my extra zucchini to make zucchini relish.
