Summer has made a rather brief appearance in Portland. Two 80 degree and sunny days in a row! I took advantage of this break in rain by putting some much needed time into the garden. There was lots of wedding, cutting, aphid fighting, pea training and tomato staking to be done. But I would say it is off to a nice start. Lots of little baby veggies are on their way! The roses are coming to an end in our yard, but we have had some real beauties this year.
