Garden journal entry


June 25, 2015. The great rush of spring gardening is over – almost all of this year's seedlings have found their way into the garden or nursery areas, most of the major transplanting is done, and spring visits to area nurseries have brought some new plants into the garden. The past few weeks have seen the gardening activities slow down: mostly to leisurely weeding (a never-ending activity), but also removal of an old overgrown elderberry and a thicket of variegated bamboo, and on hot days, algae removal while splashing around in the swimming pond. Insects have also hit their stride, like this banded hairstreak that was enjoying our Coreopsis 'Broad Street' (one of those new nursery purchases) late this afternoon. I even managed to turn our compost bin – for the first time in two years! Yep, early summer is a good time in the garden.
