My last garden update was exactly 2 months ago, so I thought it was time for a quick update. June was one of the wettest months and July is on the way to breaking some records for driest July in Vancouver. The combination of extreme rain and sun didn’t make my garden explode as much as I hoped, however things are now growing so I can’t really complain.

Sad to discover I was wrong, this is actually called Allium. They come from the onion/garlic family but don’t actually produce any garlic bulbs or onions and they smell like garlic …
