My garden this year feels hopeful, too.
As a reminder, this is how it looked on June 2nd.
And this is how it looked on July 1st.
And this is how it looks today, July 22nd.
(I've eaten, frozen, and shared a lot of kale, and also lots of yellow squash.)
And look, there's a pumpkin starting!
I think my relative inexperience with gardening really shows. I planted WAY too much in there. I somehow didn't realize how huge the squash would get, and how much squash they'd produce. And the pumpkin! I didn't realize it would escape and go all over the place. Still, it's really fun, and the food is good, and it's nice to share.
