Every dang time I'm just floored by this. This whole growing food thing.
Do you think it'll ever get used to it?
How do you go from this little nothing:
To this overgrown, tomatoes taller than me, cucumber completely taking over, monstrosity of green:
I cannot overstate how much I love having the raised beds! Love, love, love it. I can head out early in the morning, pull a few weeds, do some watering, putter, in my work clothes. It's just so easily managed.
And things are looking good!
**you'll have to forgive the low quality of these photos. it was hot. it was 8 in the morning and 85 degrees - without humidity. the 'real feel' -what they call the heat index in these here parts -is 91. awesome. another real feel day of 115!
