The garden is mulched and the warm, sunny days mean that growing is happening by leaps and bounds. I’ve picked my first tomato; many more are set on and making progress.
The zinnia rows are taller by the day. I added some extra seeds to fill in the gaps and those tiny seedlings are also growing.
I’m out here every day, checking the progress, looking after my plants, and re-arranging the sprinkler as needed. I check the blooms and admire the progress. I daydream about the cucumbers and zucchini in my future.
This part of summer is delightful but always seems fleeting, perhaps because it’s filled with such promise.
