Well, I'm happy to report it's bursting at the seams as of this morning.
Blame it on the rain -- we've had buckets of it -- but holy moly!
We've got at least three heirloom tomatoes making their way from bud to bulbous . . . I'm already dreaming of fresh mozzarella salads with homegrown tomatoes and basil picked in our back yard.
The onions went from yellow and limp to green and robust . . . (though, we have absolutely no idea when they are "done" growing -- any ideas?)
Overall, we both have this new appreciation for watching things grow this year. So far, our girl has ballooned from some thing the size of a poppy seed to a living, moving (moving a LOT!) being the size of a mango.
Let me repeat that: A MANGO.
And to think, just a few short months ago, she would have been totally dwarfed by this fledgling bell pepper!
I know many of you had gardens started early in the spring . . . or ones you threw together last minute (like us!). How are they doing? Do you know when the optimal harvest time is, or do you just pluck things off vines whenever they look kinda/sorta ready?
We definitely do the latter. No shame about it.
