In the Garden / July 2012

The heat of summer has finally arrived and my garden is basking in the endless summer days. One happy little thing that I've noticed is the succulents that are sending up flowers.

This doesn't seem to happen every year and I attribute the display to the plants level of happiness :) They are very happy this year.

My rasberries are turning red which is exciting.

And I've moved my strawberries to hang in a tree because the first handful of ripe ones were eaten by slugs. So disappointing.

I have to say the level of destruction has completely diminished and now we can finally enjoy these tasty little guys.

Also, one upside to the un-summer like weather we've had to endure is that my lettuce has yet to bolt! I've had an endless supply of yummy greens this year and I've been extremely happy with the varieties I'm growing, I'm taking lots of notes and there are many keepers in this bunch!

Clockwise from top left: Red Oak Leaf, Roxy, Cimmaron, and Little Gem.
