Hi all, I just got back from a camping vacation in Acadia (Bar Harbor, ME). We were gone 10 days. Of course the first thing I did upon returning home was check the garden. (Isn't that what you do?) It never ceases to amaze me how much plants grow in such a short time. My pots of herbs & dahlias look nothing like the ones I left. They are fairly crowding me out on the deck. A whole new set of perennials are blooming in the perennial beds (lilies, daylilies, feverfew, astilbes, hostas Japanese iris, etc). At my plot in the community garden, the peas had grown so much they had out grown their pea brush (remind me to do a better job for them next time) & were bearing boat loads of peas. The beans are flowering & setting tiny pods. The beets are just about jumping out of their beds. The zukes are ready to take off.....the eggplant is outgrowing its row cover..... If you ever need a reminder that time never stands still, just look to your garden.
