An Early Summer Stroll of the Grounds
Late June and early July in 2021 . . .
A view of the house from Combs Street.
Even on a cloudy day, the Johnny Appleseed tree looks beautiful. It grows stronger by the day.
A view of the garden from West Main Street.
This photo was taken on June 2, 2021. The vegetable and herb gardens had been planted, and the boy scouts helped create the tomato supports.
A close-up of the young garden.
The herb garden in early June, 2021.
Just one month later and the garden is going strong!
The corn is looking great and the tomatoes are looking strong. Looks like a bumper crop in the near future.
Can you see what appears to be a lone marigold?
Take a peek over the fence for a west view towards the house of a healthy garden. They would have been proud of this garden in the mid-1800s and anticipated a bountiful fall harvest.
