A garden, that is. It started back in March with some indoor seedlings.
That, for the most part, actually did sprout!
I kept them inside a few weeks longer than originally planned because we had a crazy snowy cold spring. But eventually, the surviving seedlings (plus three store-bought tomato plants from a nursery) made it into the two raised beds in our backyard.
Things got off to a pretty decent start! Especially the mustard greens and spinach, which I started from seed directly in the garden beds.
But now that it’s been a few weeks, things are really taking off!
Highlights of Bed 1 are my Painted Pony beans, purple tomatoes, and carrots:
But Bed 2 is where the really unexpected drama is happening.
Did you notice that middle section of the bed there? That looks like it’s been totally overrun by something large and leafy? Well, that would be my cucumber plant. It is literally taking over the garden bed.
I even had to rescue one of my sweet corn stalks from assassination:
Elsewhere in Bed 2, my watermelon plants seem to be doing OK, but I don’t see any fruit yet.
And of course the aforementioned sweet corn.
And here’s a terrible picture of me trying to show you how tall the corn is. Since you can’t tell at all from the picture, it’s about 24 inches.
What do you guys have growing right now? Any plants totally taking over where they shouldn’t?
