Growth Spurt!

After all the rain about a week ago, and all the nice sun we’re getting this week, everything is growing fast! In fact, we’re beginning to wonder what to do with all the produce, especially the herbs. The mint in the herb garden (all three varieties) is prospering greatly.

In fact, the only thing that has stayed about the same size is the garlic. It’s very funny to me, it was gigantic about two months ago when it first appeared, and has maintained its size with the dedication of supermodel. Thing is, everything else has grown, so the garlic is beginning to look modest. This bed of tomatoes and basil for example dwarfs it!

What’s exciting me the most are the snap peas and the carrots, both of which are entering harvesting stage, and are beautiful. Check these beauties out!

Aren’t they beautiful??? And tasty too, I’ll warrant. IMG_1871 DSCN4054

Can you count how many snap peas are visible in this picture? Neither can I, haha.

Finally, an omen of what is to come: our first tomato. Yes, already.

Now THAT is exciting. Next up, surviving the heat ahead. Today was up in the 90s, and tomorrow is forecasted for more of the same, though perhaps with a thunderstorm in the afternoon. Fingers crossed, so long as it brings rain as well as noise. Have a great day!
