Explosion of green
The vegetables are loving all the heat. The tomato plants are HUGE! I am especially proud of them because they are so tall, green, and plentiful. The feeling of attachment I have for them runs deep because I started those suckers from seed. I nursed them with water, sunlight, and the most foul smelling organic fish fertilizer liquid that you can imagine. They were just tiny little seeds and now look at them. Ah, the miracle of life. The plants are full of flowers and I've read that it generally takes 30 days from flower to ready-to-harvest fruit, so I'm pretty excited. There are even two small fruits that are growing-- they must be one of the earlier varieties that I planted. I planted all heirlooms, but I forget which kinds. Oh well-- I'll find out when I eat 'em!

Yay for seedlings that thrive! I feel the exact same way except I kind of adopted the "Mother Nature will do her thing" attitude. My tomatoes got dirt and water. Then some indirect sun. Now direct sun. I need those cage-thingies that you have. I hope this doesn't foreshadow my parenting techniques...hmmm....
