June has been one of the wettest I can remember. In between showers I took my basket to the garden to cut blooms for drying. Along the way I visited my 7 Rutgers tomato plants. I am ridiculously proud of them, having raised them from a seed. Heirlooms have the bonus attribute of being able to reproduce themselves. The stand above is now second generation. I am hoping the weather fronts provide enough sun to produce lots of red ripe fruit.
Even a short trip to my garden produced 3 bunches of Larkspur, 3 bunches of white yarrow and 2 bunches of Lambs Ear to hang for drying. The beams of the great room ceiling are filling with colorful everlastings. By September I will have enough of both blooms and fillers to create dried flower wreaths.
