A few photos from around the farm this weekend. I planted these Monarda (Bee Balm) last year and they are just blooming like crazy right now. In the mint family, this species borders on the edge of invasive. However, it’s a bee and hummingbird favorite so I think I’m ok with it taking up some space in this front bed.
Liatris or gay-feather is also blooming nearby.
My grapes are starting to get really big now. Along with everyone else, we’ve been struggling with Japanese Beetles.
My vegetables are coming on really strong right now. I have tons of cucumber, various types of squash, eggplant, kale and peppers. My tomatoes are getting very close!
I’ll post another duck update soon but here is one more photo for now.
Did you have a good 4th of July? What’s going on in your yard?
