Solstice & Alliums

Joseph & I had another good day in the garden. I mulched the 2 new asparagus beds & 2 melon beds. Joseph harvested garlic & onions, which have been happy this year. We transplanted basil, dill & spilanthes (toothache plant) from the seedbed to their permanent home & made a new bed for the Egyptian Walking onions. I should have known the newly mulched beds would be irresistable to the chickens. They promptly found them & started scratching, so we made a low fence with some hog wire to keep them out. Happy Solstice & Summer!
