From dirt to jungle in 60 days

It always amazes me that the garden looks like this on the first of June. Around this time, I start panicking, thinking nothing is going to grow, especially since I'm hearing about the bounty being harvested in other parts of the country.

Then come August, I need a machete to clear a path:

I'm posting this as a reminder to myself that come next June, don't fret.  No matter how puny and sad those tomato plants look, no matter how long it seems to be taking those zucchini, bean and carrot seedlings to show some sign of life, in 60 days I'll be knee deep in summer growth!


  1. beautiful garden, Lori! Thank you for the zucchini, I can't wait to grill them. ~Cheryl

  2. what a great garden!!!!! mine is small and my zucchini plants leaves are turning yellow any ideas???


  3. Hmmm, yellow leaves usually means too much water. Is it possible they're getting too much water? Have you been able to harvest any zucchini?
