|I can't believe it is June already. And I have daylilies blooming! |
Black Eyed Stella blooms in a section of front yard.
The area just to the left of Black Eyed Stella. The red flowers and the white you see are single flowered roses and the blue is catmint.
Small roses en mass.
I have roses blooming everywhere, even next to the house.
Here is my back patio area today.
And the southside rose garden.
Tomatoe Garden, ha-ha. Or I should say one of them.

|I wish I could grow roses well. A few grow in the area, but not many grow well except for some very old varieties.|
My best rose is NEW DAWN which grows up the side of my cottage. Great clean foliage too.
Those tomatoes are growing like gangbusters! Ah, the difference between LI and north of Boston. Mine went in Mon. Tiny still of course!
Heavy rains coming here today. And raining most all week I hear.

|I think I am a wanna be tomato farmer. When I go to the nursery to buy my plants, I just want to get ever kind there is.|

|I know what you mean Rita. I certainly would too if I had the room. I did buy one this year that I have not heard of before to try. It's called Heartland. Have you ever heard of that one before. I also bought a Bonnie Best, an Amish Paste tomato and an heirloom called Black Prince.|

|Cindy, I never had any of those. Let us know how you like them when they produce. |
I was just out admiring my tomato plants today. They do just look so nice. Admiring my bean plants also which are growing like crazy. Those all were started from seed. And I have cucumbers in ground for as long as I have had the tomatoes out and those were bought as seedlings. But right now I am starting some cucumber seed myself of China Long Chinese cucumbers and also Armenian Cucumbers. Also starting the melon seeds.

|Here is my front yard earlier today before any of the rains. I have daylilies there along on top of that stacked stone wall. |
From the other direction.
Then just turn and look up the driveway.

|Pat (my wife) bought a lot of tomato seeds of many different tomatoes from Johny's Selected Seeds. I planted eleven different tomatoes this week - hot hybrids and old favorites - just to see how they do. Her plants were just at the right stage to plant and they already are showing new leaves and growth. I am so impatient with tomatoes - I want some juicy red ripe tomatoes tomorrow. |

|Ha, I want red ripe ones right now also! But I do have some green fruit set on a few of the tomatoes. Most though have none yet. Some don't even have blooms.|

|HMMMMM! Black Cherry tomatoes???? I haven't heard of them. I'll have to give them a look. I bought a gold plant this year to go with my favorite red ones. I'm like you, very few get inside. I was looking at mine yesterday and they are alot more prolific than last year, so maybe a few will get inside.|
I too, loooooove the last lily. That's beautiful!

|I have heard of the Black Cherry tomatoes but no I have never tried them. But I sure do have lots of other types of tomatoes. This year I am growing-|
Forth of July
My cucumber list of varieties I am growing this year is also pretty great. I am growing-
Armenian Melon Cucumbers
Only five types of beans-
Chinese Yard Long Red Noodle
Chinese Yard Long Green Noodle
Plus afew other things. Then I am planning to do a fall crop on some cool season veggies like peas, brocoli and greens. I have never tried fall cropping them, just have done the usual spring planted in the past. But already have my seeds and am definately doing a fall crop this year. We will see how that works out.
I put up my cucumber trellis in the backyard the other day so I am ready for vertical gardening!

Vernal Tu-Tone with Forever Stella blooming en mass.
Lou Anna, one of the extra earlies I bought from Olallie Daylily gardens a few years ago.
Lava Flow. Usually the first of my "fancy" daylilies to bloom.
I like this shot looking accoss the daylily beds in the back yard. That bed in front has the asiatic lilies planted between the clumps and those are starting to bloom. Along the path you can see the trellis I put up for my cucumber and melon seedings.
Roses in back of the garage.
Rose planters in the front yard.
Red Alert Lilies are starting to bloom.
