Photo updates of early summer.

The fall cleanup is progressing very nicely with the warm days we have had over the last month.  Today we dug the carrots and parsnips, and the leeks and beets were harvested a few days ago, so now everything is out of the gardens. All the plant material has been shredded and incorporated back into the soil.  We wanted to save some of the dahlias tubers this year, so we dug out about 50 tubers and they are packed in peat moss in boxes and will be stored in our cold room for the winter. Will check the tubers monthly for signs of decay and dryness and will remove any rotting tubers and add moisture to the peat moss if the tubers start shriveling and drying out.

This Fall we added more plants to our inventory.  Great greenery cuts all summer and wonderful cut flowers in late Spring, early Summer.

Angelica, tall stately biennial.
This plant attracts beneficial insects, which balances out the not so beneficial insects.
