June is coming to an end, the first month of summer. June 21 was the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. As much as we would like to extend the summer, the days began to decrease little by little.
I want to show you how my garden developed in June, it's a small "report for the month". Hot weather began in the middle of the month and the plants started to develop rapidly. For several days the roses bloomed in different parts of the garden.
Garden geranium, camomile and decorative onions bloom in raised flower beds.
Purple rhododendron began to bloom near the blue fir - this is the last flowering rhododendron, the rest have already faded.
You can imagine how much I needed to water the plants on hot days. I'm glad the new pump works great. The old pump burned out last year. I have an irrigation hose, it is long enough to water all the plants.
Tomato plants are growing and already blooming in the greenhouse. Next to them, I planted green vegetables - lettuce, dill, parsley, basil, peas.
They grow well despite the fact that often the temperature in the greenhouse rises to 30 C. I had to do shade there. This is also a problem. It was cold, then suddenly it gets hot!
I often find myself thinking that these worries are pleasant and distract me. That there will be the time when plants do not need everyday watering and attention, that I can sit with a book or read the Internet.
How do you spend your time in June?
