It’s growing!!!! I was nervous leaving the “baby” garden when we made our road trip to NC. Since figuring out that gardening is a great escape route for a mom who is home all the time with all of her kids, I’ve become strangely protective of the garden. Mostly, I don’t want anyone else to discover the peace and quiet and wonderful aloneness that is out there right at the side of our house. I guard that jealously.
And, now it’s paying off! We had green beans from the garden with dinner tonight. Everything else is growing and growing. I’m encouraged but tentative. Our weather has been unseasonably cool-ish and un-humid. As long as this weather pattern holds, it’s all good. Cross your fingers!
Here are some pictures I took right before this afternoon’s thunderstorm:
