The weeds continue to thrive. Henry and I were out today to try to put a dent in them. I have found something that will keep him occupied - I pulled the car around, and he sat in the driver's seat playing quite happily for half an hour. He loves to "drive".
-corn has tassels -onions are doing whatever they do -carrots are thriving (we thinned some and enjoyed some baby carrots) -there is finally some action in the parsnip row -the artichoke plants are HUGE -broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts plants are hanging in there -pepper plants are taking off -the few bean plants that came up are making beans! -flowers on both melon and cucumber plants -heirloom tomatoes continue to ripen
I'm thrilled by the experience. Yes, the weeds are frustrating and I spend entirely too much time thinking about them, BUT, I am happy with my garden and every little sprout and every little vegetable that comes from it.
