My vegetable garden has been in the ground for a week, so the growing season has just begun. We’ve had a long and lovely Spring, with blissfully mild weather. The consistent heat which will bring on great growth has yet to arrive. When it does, the garden will grow rapidly. Until then, the changes are subtle, but there nonetheless. The messy stages of an early garden are sometimes a garden that only a gardener can love. But I know the difference between the desired plants and the unwanted weeds and things look good to me.
It’s exciting for me to check out the garden each day, always on the lookout for the growth that makes gardening such a pleasing part of my summer world.
