The first tomatoes are starting to turn red, the runner beans started to put out some flowers, the eggplants Moneymaker are growing bigger, the coriander and the borage are in full flower! So much beauty in our tiny raised bed garden! Hard to believe that just few weeks ago there was nothing in the beds!!!
Harvested the first of the elder flower and berries today. I have a ton to go and there are so many green berries on my tree. I may have to break down and buy a freezer this year for the garden. The bees were just sitting on the flower umbels drunk as a lush on elder. Can’t blame them. The scent is heady and makes me a little drunk with love too. If I have enough flowers I want to make hydrosol from them. It sounds like a miracle of alchemy to me. The best part? This means my wildflower Honey from my bees is going to have elderflower in it! #backyardgarden#elder#elderflower#magic#beedrunk#backyardbees
