Clematis Season

It is the final day of June 2013. And it is soggy here at the farm. I thought I’d share what some of our clematis look like at this time.

These two clematis are favorites of many of my friends.

    – an amazing variety, Marie! I just have 4 different ones. My pink chiffon mixed in with a dark purple is striking. The potatoes are impressing me these days 🙂 Planted fingerlings on Monday and Saturday when I was planting more romaine seeds there were the potato sprouts grinning at me.
