The tulips are nearly spent, but I had to bring this giant bad boy in to grace the table.
Trying potato sacks this year to avoid the clay soil and scale. As the plants grow, we’ll gradually fill the sacks with mulch. In the end, the whole thing dumps out for harvest. In the meantime, that little flap on the side will allow me to reach inside and harvest new potatoes without disturbing the rest of the plant.
Each sack contains four or five potato plants – very efficient!

The strawberry patch is going great guns. Lots of blooms. Bird netting goes on tomorrow.
The lilac bushes are covered with blooms. Their fragrance curls around the laundry hanging on the clothesline strung across the back porch.
Anyone recognize this bush? It’s growing up through a serviceberry, and I have no idea what it is. Can’t even remember if it gets berries. Help?
Minerva doesn’t care about all the hoopla outside. Why leave a comfy bed in the window seat just to go play in the dirt?
Have a great weekend!
