|A view of the whole garden|

Last weekend I spent a lot of time mowing and collecting grass clippings to cover the whole garden. A couple nights this week I pulled the big weeds that came up through clippings. Now it's looking lush and healthy. The tomatoes are covered in their first yellow flowers. The pepper flowers are white and one little plant has the first two fruits of the year: tiny green sweet peppers. The carrot greens are lush and full. The kale is dark green and tall. Sunflowers are almost knee high, reaching up towards their namesake. Beets are leafing out in colorful shades of purple and green. I planted beans and cucumbers under the trellises Josh built and they are starting to peak up through the wire. The corn has doubled in size in the last week. I love going out to the garden in the morning to check on the progress of each little plant. Seeing their growth makes me so happy. It still fills me with wonder what can come from a tiny little seed.
