Flowers and beets

Yesterday, we spent some time pulling up perennials from next year's potato bed, but ran out of steam in the heat. While we were doing that, we saw some lovely flowers enjoying the sun.

This aster has sheltered behind a rock and provides some welcomed colour in the middle of summer.

And a hosta that Jessica's grandmother gave us has started to flower in the shade of a hedge. We also harvested the first of the baby beets. These were about the size of ping-pong balls and were delicious roasted.

Up next: We have a wheelbarrow full of irises to trim and replant in a shady spot around front. And then some catmint needs to be uprooted and relocated as well.
