I sit on the porch to take a break from the heat or rain and remove the stems and leaves.
I ended up with 7 quarts of red currants. I froze them to make jam doing the winter.
Red Currant harvesting underway
Here are some pictures of the different flowers blooming in the garden at this time. Enjoy !
Rudbeckia and coneflowers
The garden gets many animal visitors. A grasshopper is on a flower on the left and a deer is walking down my street. I surround the gardens with deer fencing. But every night the deer pass by looking for an opening to the all you can eat 24/7 snack bar!
