June Bug

“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.” ― Gloria Steinem

Can you believe we're solidly in June? With the weather being so moody this year, the glowing fireflies 'round dusk, aside from the snaps and daisies, are the only clue that summer IS here.

With summer veggies and flowers thriving in the ground, June tends to assume a slower pace for gardeners (aside from harvesting :)). It is this seeming uneventfulness that gets me anxious/excited again about planning for next season's garden! What do we want it to look like? What will we grow? When is the time to start what – all questions that can overwhelm especially if you're a first time gardener, have only a small space or windowsill, or simply are full of ideas and favourites in mind.

Before moving on to sharing a list of our try-and-true's from growing both flowers and vegetables in Georgia and North Carolina, I want to write a bit about our potager garden.

Some of you have asked how we designed, planned, and built the potager this past spring, despite navigating our move between GA, SC, and NC. The simple answer is, we just did it – with me being the dreamy, design and flower girl, and my other half being the practical engineer and veg guy!

With so many plant choices all around us, the first question you'd want to answer is, WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY – being surrounded by beautiful seasonal flowers, rewarded with things you can eat or share at a dinner party, or playing a part in restoring biodiversity in your area? If you don't yet know or want to have it all — don't worry, you can have it all.

Hop to it – there's no time better than now.
