It’s surprising how huge of a difference just one month can make when things are growing. Not only has my waist expanded significantly over the past month (I guess I had to start wearing maternity pants sometime), but the garden has come into a growth spurt of its own. Compare:
A mite scanty, but respectable, wouldn’t you say?
Then there’s the August Garden
As you can see, it’s kind of taken over and then some. We’ve already harvested some delicious corn, and tons of squash (with promises of many more to come).
The tomatoes continue to tempt – in spite of the sun and the heat, I haven’t gotten a single ripe one. But there are quite a few green tomatoes, so I haven’t given up hope yet.
The tomato plants themselves are something to behold. They’re incredibly sprawly (yes, I used those cage things, but these plants are not to be contained!). If I were a plant growing in the garden, I would be scared of them. As it is, I’m just impatient to get a ripe one…
As this summer winds up, I’ll be sure to keep you updated on the growth of both my waistline and our green stuff in the garden. So far, both promise to be very productive!
