Seattle had record breaking heat yesterday and reached a whopping 87 degrees.
Compared to the previous record of 79 set back in 1957,
that's a fairly hefty climb. Although it was much cooler out here ... a divine 75 or so ...
things were definitely looking up in the garden.
I do hate it when the grass grows 4 inches per minute,
but that's a subject for another post.
These I don't mind ...
I'm letting some of the chioggia beets go to seed so I can donate them
to the local Seed Library. I swear they grew 6 inches yesterday ...
really, I should be measuring these things.
They're in a raised bed and are as tall as me now.
If this keeps on I'm going to need a step stool to harvest them.
I'd use the bench ... but ...
Silly phone app. Benches don't go vertical.
Finally got the big motha' trellis back up. Should take care of my bean addiction nicely.
Gonna try a little experiment with mixing in some annual flowering vines ...
maybe some scarlet morning glories for the dye pots,
or Grandpa Ott's.
I shot these camassia this morning. The marine layer moved back in overnight
and they do so appreciate the cooler temps ... they've visibly perked up in the moist air.
They're always the first plants of any stature to bloom here in the garden
and I'm very glad to have them around a bit longer.
