It's been three weeks since the soil first got tilled and we have already come a long way. While there's still a good month of patience ahead for any harvest beyond herbs, I look around the garden every morning and every night...there is always something new.
This little Thessaloniki tomato being the biggest news in new things. He is going to get big and red and heavy. He is soaking in the rain and the sunshine and all the sweetness available. I am quite protective of my lone tomato.
This is an eggplant. Err...this will be an eggplant.
Beets. And that also means beet greens.
The tomatoes are starting to grow up onto the trellis built for them and I'm hoping the zucchini and cucumber will see what a wonderful idea that is and try it out for themselves.
So far the only seed that hasn't consistently come up is the carrots. I will try again but I'm thrilled with the butternut squash, zucchini and cucumber. Send recipes...I'm going to need them. The garden is a totally new kind of joy for me. You'd already know that if you heard my pep talk to it yesterday morning.
Maybe not the best idea to admit to talking to the plants on the Internet. You won't commit me till the first frost, right?
