Gardens: better late than never

Across the Adirondack North Country, we saw winter retreat slowly. For most gardeners, it has been like the “olden days”: some early plantings in mid-May, with the bulk of the garden going in during early June.

So, in keeping with the late start for the garden season, I’m late getting our garden-tracking photos off the ground. Cassandra Corcoran prodded me with a few early images which I think I deleted by mistake.

Consider this a shout out: to Cassandra and everyone else who gardens across the Adirondack North Country, northwestern Vermont, and southeastern Ontario. Send me your photos from time to time and we’ll track gardening progress–and setbacks.

Photos today were taken in my garden within the last day or two. Now it’s your turn. Email your photos to me: ellen@ncpr.org and don’t shrink them down too much. I’ll edit them for size. Thanks.

Lupines are both perennial and self-sowers. Look for little seedlings around older plants. Easy to relocate if they're creeping too far into space you want to use for something else. Photo: Ellen Rocco
