Sunday morning

One third of the vegetable garden all planted: lettuce, rainbow chard, beetroot, basil, coriander/cilantro, borlotti beans, fennel, and onion sets. Covered over with net to try to discourage the turkeys from scratching everything up, but no doubt they'll find a way in.  Harvested two pails of parsnips for dinner tonight, and two giant beetroot which may have won an entry in the Guiness Book of Records for size, but won't win anything in the kitchen. Oops.

Weeded the new rose garden and found last year's lilies and gladioli poking their way up.

And now it's summer. 75 degrees in Citrus Heights today, and I'm retiring indoors to edit last night's photos.
