In Michigan, we expect lilacs to bloom in May, but nowadays there is no normal, nothing to expect, only to be present with what is. Everything is a week or two later than we had expected. We are so grateful that anything blooms and grows at all! May showers finally gave way to June flowers and vegetables.
A new crop of interns appeared.
Seedlings were planted out.
The chicks grew and changed. Easier to tell them apart.
Trees were planted. This poplar was planted in the Picnic Grove.
Lettuce grew and was harvested with the first CSA share on June 12th.
Strawberries ripened and are given to the CSA members every week until gone.
Interns came for a Reunion weekend. With Dr Greg’s careful instructions, they created and planted a new black currant grove.
The next day, Gigi and Dr Greg mulched the plants with straw.
