From infancy to puberty in 6 short days
I had to be away for about 6 days. In that short time, the garden went from infancy to puberty. The tomatoes have weathered their transplant and are well established. With the exception of the Killarney Red and the Chesnok Red, all of the garlic scapes have been harvested, and the plants are busy below ground now bulbing out. Perhaps most exciting was seeing the runner beans taking hold of the bean trellis. I can almost hear the lead leaf shouting over his shoulder ..."Hang on down there ... you're in for the ride of your life!"
