What's happening in the Sikes gardens...:

Peaches are slowly ripening, should be ready by July (or sooner) and some will ripen in August.

We always have Swiss Chard, kale and herbs (basil, spearmint, chocolate mint, lemon thyme, lemon balm, Greek and regular oregano).

Eggplants are just now flowering. Carrots are still around. Tomatoes are just forming, think most of them are cherry toms.

Luffha (sponges) are planted and hopefully won't get eaten like the squash plants have been.

New Zealand spinach is really growing well and will all summer. Green beans are starting to form.

Grapes are doing well and so are the blackberries (Mrs Sikes grew blackberries and make jam, traded in town for other goods)

We have potted some herbs for sale and have sold some native plants, California Poppies and a flowering native, for the RiverPark.
