I haven't been entirely lazy around here, even though I have neglected this space. After winter, a switch was flipped in typical New England fashion and we find ourselves in summer.... at least thisclose to it. Proof from the gardens:

garlic scapes almost ready to curl

 strawberries turning blush
 these are gooseberries - delicious in pie and preserves
 beans, kale, lettuce
 red currants got decimated by the rain, I think
 the wild strawberries I grow as a ground cover

 the first few cherry tomatoes are forming

 blueberries will need netting soon

a gratuitous flower show of the front yard. The spireas are about to bust out in pink and I am seeing a few more hydrangea buds than last year.
