Wordless Wednesday: Summer Gardening Never Stops
Summer Solstice is almost here. The garden still needs attention, and evidence of the rewards close at hand are everywhere. Time to feed, weed and guide your plants along into summer.

Summer strawberries are sweet as can be.

The garden doesn’t go on vacation even if we do. Give your garden a little love this summer and it will keep going while you’re gone.
