What’s up in the garden as of last Saturday:
- The water lily bloomed for the first time.
- No cicadas have shown up in the yard, although they are pretty noisy in the forest preserve 2 miles to the west.
- The kale and chard in the garden by the side of the garage are being nibbled by something, although I’m unsure whether it’s bugs or bunnies at fault. Interestingly enough, the marigolds there are nibbled down to nothing, but the marigolds 10 feet away on another side of the garage are just fine.
- All three of the Caroline raspberry canes have leaves and one is even trying to flower (I’m pinching the buds so they concentrate on growth this year, not fruiting).
