tomorrow its going to be 39C and its not even Summer.

 My first harvest of Asparagus peas
Drying out some Marjoram
Busy day today sorting out the irrigation before the Summer I use a lot of drip irrigation,uses less water(well it would if I remember to switch it off).This year I would like to put timers on all my taps.


  1. Oh my goodness Cathy ~ such high temperatures! Well perhaps you could box some up and send it to me in Southwest Saskatchewan. We have set to see the double digits for more than one day. Love all your green! :)

  2. That is a lot of asparagus pea harvest. I like their flowers but not fond with the flavour. My mother used to grow them when I was a kid. Hope the heat is just a short time. Keep cool. I thought I saw some stock in there.

    1. There are stock everywhere in the garden over 50 plants and I also gave away a lot as well.Thank you again for the seed giveaway, also the larkspur are going to flower soon.

  3. Oh Wow! That is hot. Lovely photographs.

  4. I hope your gardens can withstand that kind of heat.

  5. I envy you in your Garden of Eden! Sighhhhhh!

  6. Thanks for your comment on my blog. Your pics are lovely. Did you know that you can pickle the nasturtium seeds and use them like capers?

  7. A lovely crop of flowers and herbs. Timers are good for watering. I used to put the stove timer on for 30 mins to remind me to trn off the water. That sure is a hot day for Spring.

  8. Can't imagine those temps...hope your gardens didn't wilt too much. Such an interesting harvest, those aspargus peas. Beautiful photo!
