Garden Update

It has been brought to my attention that I haven't shown an overview of our garden in a while. After I looked at my last garden post did I really realize how much it's grown in just a few short weeks!

3 Weeks Ago:


The tomatoes in the back are the most surprising. I can't believe they were 1/3rd the size just 3 weeks ago! 
Our cauliflower & broccoli florets are starting to come out. It's pretty incredible how leafy and big the stalks get before they begin to flower. 

Another fun thing in our garden: the grapevine is getting wrapped up on everything around it! 
I guess that's how vines work, but I've never seen it in person before so this is all very fascinating to me. Plant life is an amazing thing =) Though I will admit the celery is probably the most boring one to follow the progress of since all its doing is just getting taller...and taller... and taller.... see what I mean?

In other news, I.S.'s big ride is tomorrow! And then the day after! Ahhh! Let's be sure to send him lots of positive vibes as he has to wake up at 4am to get down to the start in Evergreen and then proceed to bike his butt off all day (possibly literally!). I still think he's nuts. But amazingly inspiring at the same time! Love ya babe ;) Good luck!

Happy Friday the 13th everyone!
