There’s a season for everything here at 1840 Farm. Soon, it will be my favorite season of all: tomato season. I’ll walk out to the garden every morning to survey the ripe fruit and return to the farmhouse with pounds of delicious heirloom tomatoes to share with my family. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water.
I am happy to report that there are tomatoes on the vine out in the heirloom garden. Unfortunately, there are weeks of waiting ahead before they will be ready to enjoy. Until then, we’re harvesting lettuce by the pound, along with turnips, peas, and raspberries.
No, it’s not quite tomato season yet, but right now I’m enjoying lily season. Every morning, I seem to be greeted by a new, glorious bloom in the perennial beds. The blooms are strikingly beautiful and come in a paintbox full of colors.
The lilies are such a welcome sight in the perennial gardens here at 1840 Farm. Alas, the blooms do not last very long, so I try to capture them with my camera when they are in bloom. During lily season, I wade carefully through the blooming perennials to capture each color of lily. While looking at them through my camera lens, I am always amazed at their beauty.
I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do. Lily season is in midstream here and should continue for a few more weeks. I’ll be capturing each variety as they come into bloom and sharing them here and on Facebook. Then I’ll be counting the days until my beloved heirloom tomato season arrives and I can share photos of my favorite heirloom varieties.
