I confess that, other than gathering the vegetables and the blueberries, I haven't actually spent much time in the garden this week. Early in the week, it was raining which kept me mostly indoors. We got another 0.7 inch of rain, making a grand total of 2.5 inches in just about a week. Later in the week, I was busy with other things and so the garden had to struggle along without me.
When I did venture out, I continued trying to document the small butterflies in the garden. At the same time I saw plenty of the larger ones, including a beautiful Tiger Swallowtail which, unfortunately, I was not able to photograph. The garden is really "blooming" with butterflies these days.
We've been enjoying tasty tomatoes, peppers, and squash from the veggie garden this week, and tomorrow we are going to have our very first corn! The vegetable garden has been especially productive this spring. After last year's almost complete failure, I am relishing all this bounty.
