I have mixed feelings about the garden right now.
Some parts of the garden are doing really, really well. Like this bean teepee you see above. The beans are faithfully climbing up the wooden poles and the hubbard squash below is spreading like wild fire. I’m super excited to see what it’s going to look like in another month or so when the squash are a bit larger and the ground is completely covered in vines.
Here’s another mis-matched raised garden bed. This one has tomatoes, rainbow Swiss chard, kale, a few onions and even more squash starts. Did I mention I have ocd? Yeah, well, sloppy garden beds make me crazy. Just looking at the plants make me itch. I need the vegetables to line up, in perfect rows, and to ripen at the same time, or I start to break out in hives.
This heirloom tomato and onion bed isn’t so bad.
Oh, and look at this. Guess who’s not getting any freakin’ Brussel sprouts?
Oh. The. Horror.
But then again, there are a lot of things going well in the garden right now as well…
Please tell me I’m not the only one who feels this way.
How is YOUR garden growing?
Do you feel like you are in the ugly ducking stage too?
