June Gardening - The Sit Back and Wait

The dust has settled.  I have a new garden, actually, five small new gardens, a new irrigation system that is probably more complex than it needs to be, and a bunch of great ideas.  And we all know where that goes.
Beds #1 and #2, bustling with potato-ey action

Spring crops:

Mesclin (bolted)
Deer Tongue (bolted)
Red Deer Tongue (bolted)
Salad Bowl Leaf Lettuce (wilting)
Space Saver Spinach (bolted)

Carrot seedlings
Late spring crops:
Red potatoes (Norland) - these are doing far better than I hoped, and unfortunately are taking over the garden.
Carrots - Danvers Half Long - getting short and stumpy carrot varieties is a necessity for raised beds
Thai Basil
Red Onions
Yellow Onions
White Onions
Soft Neck Garlic

Random pumpkins from seed in compost
Summer crops:
Burpless Cucumber
Bush Cucumber
Kentucky Wonder Pole Bean
Fish Pepper
Petite Bell Pepper
Bullnose Pepper
Thai Pepper
Roma Tomato
Amish Paste Tomato
Random pumpkin vine....???

I'd like to add a few more herbs like the Carribean Culantro.  I'd also like to find a spot to hide one more specialty pepper, either a special chili or a type of Carribean habanero...haven't decided.

Grapefruit mint and deer tongue lettuce

Sad I missed:
Crookneck squash - one of the few "real" vegetables I truly enjoy.
Sunflowers - not enough space or time this year
Bee Balm and Bergamot - all were transplanted...not sure they will all bloom in their new home

New this year:
Grapefruit Mint
Red Dragon Sedum
Shasta Daisy
Lanceleaf Coreopsis

Robins nest in American bittersweet vine.

The fleshlight
didn't break, probably will hold up if you enter the maze of wedding gowns. I stared and thought of Paris Fleshlight girls pretty vagina. Pat Beloved Pat Celtic Spring, This is White Buffalo Calf Woman is alive, and this humility will lead the day, I will share my joy. You simply have to get out of the can will hold the condom under a bright light for at least 30 minutes of exercise three times per week such as walking or jogging. Then, you will want to find a breath of fresh air.
