The key to gardening, apparently, is complete neglect. I have been wrapped up in house projects so much lately and the weekends have been rainy and the garden has been entirely on its own for about two weeks. I finally got out there this afternoon and despite the weeds, there is actual food growing! I’m so excited.
The garden is kind of wild. Scary wild. I managed to tame a bit of it this afternoon, but it looks like I have a long weekend ahead of me.
The biggest surprise of all, though, was the tomatoes. They look like they’re ready to climb out of the garden and hit the road. There are tomatoes everywhere! I have no idea why the plants are so huge this year, I don’t think I did anything different. Go figure. Now to figure out how to restake them so they don’t walk off in the middle of the night.
