growing season






Things are beginning to green up around here.  It seems the extreme neglect that my garden has suffered through has not been enough to kill it.  It's a bit weedy, but thanks to watering with a timer and occasionally finding the time to pull an errant weed or two, the tomatoes, garlic, onions, cilantro, carrots, zucchini, summer squash, beans, lettuce, and peppers are all growing.  The peppers, which were started from seed, are only about 1 1/2 inches tall so far, but I am hopeful the heat will bring them up and out of their cozy home within the coffee cans.  My moonflowers and hollyhocks are also making their appearances; with buds formed on the hollyhocks.  Now, all we need is a soaking rain and some heat, and we may be in business.  Ahhh, speaking of rain....it just started to rain.  Thank you, God!
