Per Heather’s request, a garden update in pictures:
I came home from Buffalo this week and everything had flowered. Green tomatoes had sprouted!
Even our sickly-looking peppers had grown big and tall. A few had started to bend so I staked them yesterday using fallen tree branches and strips of fabric cut from one of Joe’s old T-shirts.
And our cucumber plants! They’re climbing the red cage and crawling across the front lawn.
Kudos to my husband for tending to the plant children while I was gone. Didn’t I read somewhere that if you can grow a garden, you can raise a family?
