I Love Early June Mornings

I just enjoy the freshness of an early summer garden:

Beans on the arbor

Corn/Tomatoes

Wow, I love your garden! That arbor with the beans climbing is beautiful. I planted my peas next to the porch so that they could climb and make a little vine wall next to the steps. Having them go up and over is just way cool.

Looking great! I agree early morning is the best time to enjoy the garden. :D

The corn on the pier has to be as eye-catching as the tomatoes were. Could you post some pictures from the water as the other boaters would see it?
Learning never ends because we can share what we've learned. And in sharing our collective experiences, we gain deeper understanding of what we learned.

I have had the arbor about three years now, and it works great. This area does not get much sun early in the season, so it does take awhile to get it going. Also, I have to put the beans in pots or the rabbits help themselves to the young plants.

Back in the early spring two of my grandsons were visiting. It rained so we spent a lot of time in the greenhouse. I gave them each a flat and had them fill with dirt and plant the seeds of their choice. The 5 yr old planted some of these beans, and I later transplanted them to the garden. The 8 yr old wanted to plant some corn, so corn we planted. I was not sure how it would do, but I transplanted it to the garden, and this is what it looks like now, already producing some ears of corn

That looks downright idyllic, lakngulf. Especially with all those hydrangeas hanging over the bank. So lush.
