Every time I come to work in the vegetable garden these days, I enjoy a certain aroma therapy. The perfume comes from Lonicera which is now in full bloom. The smell is somewhat heavy when you are near it but I love it when the parfume spreads around the veg-garden.
In spite of all rainy days, I notice no diseases on plants. Even the roses are spared of black spots and aphids.
See the runner beans? They doubled the height in only six days!
They twine around the bamboo poles.
This year I tried something new. I sowed some asparagus seeds. As it was some month ago, I thought the seed will never germinate. Yesterday I noticed young asparagus plants. Sowing asparagus is a real exercise in patience because it will take at least three years before I will be able to harvest them. But, once established, asparagus can last for decades.
