June this year has been kinder than last. I’ve only had to wear rain boots two or three times so far and have switched to my lighter jackets successfully. That said, there’s still a chill in the air and we’ve been spooked out of camping twice so far with temperatures dropping to the single digits (Celsius, people… I’m trying!) still.
That said, one part of summer has already arrived – the happy results of early spring planting.
This wonderful little concoction of greens includes some kind of choy vegetable I forgot the specifics of, red and green leaf lettuces and a few pieces of arugula. Having grown up successfully (in spite of a north-facing lack of sun and squirrel who ate quite a few of their seedling brethren) these little greens will keep me from having to buy lettuces for a while.
But not everyone is an enemy!
I still have sugar snap peas on the way and fingers crossed for red tomatoes (last year’s were mostly green). I also have some wonderful flowers starting to come up so come on Summer and bring my little green balcony some sunny days, warmer nights!
