how does your garden grow?
garden, home, personal
My garden burst into life over the weekend. What were tiny sprouts on May 2, at the largest, are now vigorous plants four inches high or more. The beans underwent an especially radical transformation. Even last Friday only one was even poking out of the ground, and now they've outstripped the peas.

The parsley hasn't sprouted yet, unfortunately. Also, the oak-leaf lettuce seems to be suffering from some sort of rot, or maybe burn, so I should ask the nursery about what that could be. Might just be the heat. Otherwise, everything's doing very well. I need to add string for the peas to climb on soon.

I added carrots and finally got my zucchini and yellow crookneck squash seeds in last weekend, so I expect them to be springing from the ground sometime next week. I also added some lemon catnip to my mint planter. If all goes well, I'll have a full salad by midsummer!

That is really cool! How life affirming, in a way.
