June garden

This June's garden has had a lot more rain than last year's June garden.  It's been great for all of the transplants we have put in from our back backyard, Bab's garden, and the garden down the street.  The kids have added a few fairy gardens and some other little focal points.  The raised beds are doing great.  We've already done a few harvests of the herbs, lettuce, chard, and a few peppers.  I am anxiously awaiting the leggy peas that are filling in as well as the pickling cucumbers.   In the front we've had to put up wire around the strawberries to keep the rabbits out.  We've been able to pick about 4 or 5 cups of berries total which has far surpassed last year's harvest.  My only issue is weeding, the rain is keeping the Creeping Charlie creeping and it seems like it just won't ever end.  We also have lots of wild garlic, dandelions and other things that I don't even know what to name.  So here it is - a few pics that don't even begin to give the beauty justice.....

I've been wanting to post "Summer! And the weeding is easy" because of how damp the ground is. It is hard to keep up when the whole world is so very happy to be growing (including the mosquitos), but you needed something to keep you out of trouble, right?
I'm loving this lush world we live in this year. Thanks for sharing a look into yours!!!
