June and things are growing
The clover is slowly getting past its prime. There has been a lot of it and the bees have definitely been working it. I also found some bees on our blossoming cilantro, but more often the little dark bee in the photo below.
The bees are doing well, but other things are looking good here in Iowa in June. It's been quite dry, but we're heading into a great berry season nonetheless. The black raspberries should be plentiful, though we're still learning how to trim them properly to get larger, juicier berries. We'll continue to get a bigger harvest from our wild ones along the edge of the woods.
Kathy's garden is also in good early season shape. We've already had a lot of lettuce and cabbage. Here are her tomatoes.
