Here is the latest from Tim Vojt's early summer garden in Columbus, Ohio.

"June arrived in a heatwave and is departing with cool, autumnal temperatures in central Ohio. Here are a few highlights from my June garden, including two butterflies that I raised, having rescued the caterpillars from predators to help the population. I've also attached a recent wreath project I did with a windfall of Tillandsia I received from a GPODer. It's got some bare spots that I will eventually fill in, but I don't mind the wreath form showing all that much."
