What was funny was that earlier in the afternoon, I had called my girls out to water various thirsty looking plants. There was no rain in the forecast... and other parts of the city barely got wet while we had a deluge. But here I had put my girls to work for no good reason. Oh well, at least they weeded their vegetable boxes.
Julia's box is doing pretty well, though she planted her carrots more thinly than she intended, I think. A cut worm took out one of two tomato plants before we took him out, and one cucumber plant died. But that means there will be more room for the other two cucumbers, which will likely try a hostile takeover of the entire box.
And Suzanna's pumpkins are growing by the foot each night. Ever want to see something grow, day to day? The pumpkin is your plant. I don't think Jack threw down magic beans. They were pumpkin seeds! Suzanna's plants will probably try a hostile takeover of the ligularia/delphinium patch beside them, and half the lawn, too.
