That is Matt's word from over at Querencia. I liked it and I stole it. The recent rains certainly seem to be agreeing with my son's garden. We've already begun harvesting the radishes and the first green tomatos are beginning to bulge. The corn is almost knee high already - I don't know if that is good or bad, but all six stalks are growing fast.

The plum tree that is shading the garden from the late afternoon sun has begun showing its fruit as well. Right now the plums are green and about as long as the end of your thumb. They need to round out a bit and then, eventually, they'll turn, well, plum.

I cannot wait until I have a house so I can plant a garden! We've got parsley and basil growing on a window sill though...

Historically, I have been an abysmal failure at gardening. We moved it closer to the house, and put my son in charge. Hopefully, it will work better.

Thanks Isaac,
