My peas are blooming. Pretty flowers :)

Today I saw a black swallowtail butterfly in our garden, hovering over our carrots and parsley. Yay!

Other butterflies seen in our garden this year:

  • cabbage whites (non-native, ubiquitous, and the first butterflies I saw this year)
  • a yellow one I think is a clouded sulphur
  • a red admiral (apparently a banner year for them)
  • a eastern tiger swallowtail just passing overhead

And it looks like monarchs have arrived in Massachusetts, so maybe, if I’m lucky, I’ll see a few of them too.

Garden blog, eh, what?

Yes, so, this is my new garden blog. Welcome. Not sure how or how much I’ll end up using this. Time will tell. In the meantime you can read the lay of the land post or look at a plan of our vegetable garden.

Or ask me questions!
