This overgrown jungle is my garden from last year. I still can't believe how much food came from one little plot.
This year I nurtured my seeds and watched them grow into little starts for two months. They were long past due to grow into a new home, but the weather made me hesitant. I planted them in my community garden at the end of May and have been watching them grow for over a month. It is fascinating to observe what light, soil and water can do to a tiny seed! Now that the heat of summer is finally here, all of my tomato plants are exploding in size. I've been dreaming about gazpacho, caprese salad, fresh marinara, BLTs and thick, salted slabs of juicy heirlooms.
