I love June. The weather is finally reliably warm but not uncomfortably hot. My backdoor is open from morning until night. The neighbors and friends are all outside and it is finally time for my garden to bloom. And the blooming is a wonder to me every year.
I have a weakness when it comes to roses. They seem to be the essence of romance. And in my garden, I have managed to grow a few different varieties. I wish they had invented digital photos with smell. These grow near my kitchen window and when the breeze blows through, my kitchen smells so wonderful!
Speaking of kitchens, the real stars of June in my house are my berry plants. There is no comparison between store bought berries and berries allowed to ripen on their vines. These are destined to be freezer jam. Soon. Probably-tonight soon.
Any suggestions for what else I should plant in my garden? I have a space normally taken by pumpkin and zucchini, but Mr. Fox specifically asked for no pumpkins (too big) and no zucchini (too many) so aside from planting even more tomatoes, I am at a loss.
So, do you love June? What’s your favorite part?
