We started our June garden tour at Dave's where we were welcomed by Jessie.
Dave's artichokes looking tall and comely
and his planter boxes thriving. Lower right features red orach and bok choy.
Lots of gardening tips being exchanged on what felt like the first summery day we'd had.
Next stop Laurie's where the size of the potatoes growing beside the house gave us an inkling about the lushness we would find in the back...
Sure enough. What was once a bare back yard is now park-like:
A bumper crop of blueberries on its way.
Laurie's neighbour let us ramble through her garden, an unscheduled but welcome stop
on the way to Scott and Katrinka's, where the leeks are in bud
the greenhouse is shiny and full of tomatoes
and garden life is good all round.
Beautiful water feature.
As we ready ourselves for the potluck supper, Belle takes up the dulcimer, and Scott demonstrates the washtub bass.
