Things are really filling out in the garden this month. Come and visit during our Demonstration Gardens Tour, July 2nd from 2-3pm. The herb gardeners are going to have samples of iced basil lemonade! (Did you know the MG’s are growing 10 different kinds of basil?!)
The native plant garden area was recently started. This garden is located at the corner of Jefferson and the alley in a more shady part of the garden. Soil was prepped, anchor plants installed and irrigation is in.
Finally got around to staking the tomatoes in the trial bed! Before (top) and after (bottom)-look there is basil under there!
The pollinator patch is looking great, too. Sunflowers need to be thinned and the zinnias are growing in. Some mystery plants are growing from the “Bee Mix” seed packets which were seeded on the far edges.
