Growth

It’s strange how quickly things change in the garden. The July garden was not the same as the June garden, and the August garden is not the same as the July garden. Even this Monday’s garden is not the same as last Friday’s garden.

Since we are out there nearly every day, the changes don’t seem so dramatic. It’s only when I sort through the pictures that I can see the difference.

Remember our little bean sprout? Thirty-five days later, it’s a bush bean proper.

And the tiny tomatillo plant from the blooms post? Now it’s one of the largest plants in the garden.

In the original (late June) pictures of our sign for the “about” page, you can see the freshly hoed and planted rows of tomatoes, cucumbers, and melons. By late July, the vines were huge, and the flowers we planted to attract beneficial insects were in bloom as well.

Plants are magical.
