Happy June! Greetings from the Garden

We are finally feeling that spring is here to stay. Actually, it is feeling like summer this week.. As you will see in my photos, while I am still growing microgreens, I am also experimenting in my mini greenhouse until later in the summer when we will plant raised beds with fencing to protect from the deer etc.

A friend is also teaching me how to do Bokashi composting...something you start inside with effective microorganisms used to begin breaking down the ingredients. Have any of you tried it?

What are you growing inside or out? Hope you are enjoying the opportunity to grow something for your spirit and your stomach. The tatsoi and kale were started as microgreens and transplanted with a feeding of seaweed fertiizer.

We are also going to grow swamp milkweed for our monarch butterflies. Is anyone growing particular flowers for the butterflies and any other pollinators?

Here is kale from microgreens .

Here is my own salad ready to harvest: deer tongue lettuce and spinach.


In the foreground is tatsoi transplanted from my microgreens.


 This is our mini greenhouse to  fend off the deer and protect tender plants from many freezing nights we have had this spring.
I have been teaching some folks how to grow microgreens...great way to have your greens if you don't want a garden in the ground. Protect your greens from deer and birds if they are outside ...I use netting when they come out on a table.


May you find peace inside and out as we move into summer.

My book is still available on Amazon. Here is the link Growing Microgreens Step by Step
