Jess and I spent much of the weekend cycling (two crashes, seven band aides...) and making jam from the raspberries we picked on Saturday. But we also had a bit of time in the yard.

The tomatoes are starting to ripen, beginning with these tumbler tomatoes by the back door. We've also been eating a lot of lettuce and zucchini from the garden. At some point I'm going to need to do some major pruning to focus the tomatoes on the fruit they have set.

Most of the potatoes are finished blooming and (I hope) are hard at work making spuds. But a late planting (filling in a hole) behind the garage has just bloomed..

The lilies (Asiatic? Hard to recall all of these years later) are blooming and adding a nice shock of colour. I will be moving these around to the front bed when the flowering is done to give it some summer interest besides annuals like pansies (below)

Up next: This week we need to finish moving the irises to the front and start on the catmint. I'm also starting to blanch and freeze green and yellow beans.
