Bloomin' Gardens!!

picture by Nettie's Gardens, LLC
Boy, after the Spring we had here in the Upper Midwest, it seems a bit disgusting that it is already Mid-Summer, yet here we are! After so much cold and rain, we are finally in a nice warm stretch.

How is your garden growing? What do YOU have blooming/fruiting now?

We have our bell and hot peppers flowering! YAY!! The tomatoes are still a bit iffy here, but a few more days of hot sun will get them hopping. For the first time since they were planted, my Calamagrostis 'Karl Forester' grasses are blooming. They are simply beautiful. Never thought I would be so captivated by a grass! The Monarda have opened up and are blooming as well Coreopsis. In fact, just about everything is blooming around here, with the exception of Sedum.

Remember to keep things well-watered this time of year. If you let your plants get stressed, it will affect their blooming. It can take up to 2 weeks for them to fully recover.

What are you seeing in YOUR garden??

Lots of weeds!!! o.k., and some spinach and lettuce that taste great. Peas are almost ready.

Outside the garden (on a tree, of course) we have a ton of cherries that I need to figure out what to do with. :)
