I rarely comment but I visit you quite often. Your cooking and baking blows me away, and I enjoyed the garden tour. Happy Summer!

Beautiful as always!
I was rather late putting my potatoes in the ground (and a good thing that was since we had those really late frost nights) so they aren't especially big yet. No fresh potatoes for midsummer from my own patch but they are rather cheap in the grocery store now so I'll buy some for midsummer's eve.

Have a great day!

Christer.

My Rare One's garden is growing like gangbusters (mainly root veggies) but for some reason the garlic started well but then crapped out. Too much rain for it perhaps.

I am going to try cukes in bags next year!

I envy you for being such great gardener. I cannot wait to start gardening myself. Oh and my parents too have clematis. I miss them.
