Just because it’s June …


There will be blackberries.


I’ve sown a lot of red clover seed, but I learned that it’s just too big a plant to grow in the yard. Only white clover, it seems, happily co-exists with grass. But the red clover loves unmowed ditches and banks.


There will be day lilies — lots of them. The deer have not eaten them this year the way they did last year, during a dry spring. I’ve learned that it’s mainly drought that drives the deer into the yard to devastate what’s growing at the abbey. They still come for the clover, but that’s not a problem.


I planted my heirloom beans late, but the first ones are coming up now.


If the promised rains come through, the celery crop will be good.
