Garden: Week 9
It's nature unleashed! (Methinks we planted stuff a little too close together.)
So after another round of fertilizer last week, the garden has mutated into a green monster that is starting to take over.
In particular, it's "Revenge of the Cucumbers", as they've shot out these lasso-like things that will pretty much jump out of the garden and grab you if you walk by.
Okay, maybe not, but the cucumbers are starting to vine out everywhere, threatening the existence of peaceful green pepper plants from Alderaan.
Elsewhere in the garden, it's "A New Silk". Just in the past week, we've see the emergence of corn tassels, and some corn silk, where the stalks are starting to widen.
Mom-E decided that the tassels should be called "pre-corn", which I really liked and prefer over tassel.
Say it with me now "... Mmm ... corn!"
And then below the surface of those giant leaves that are bigger than my head, we have "Attack of the Squash", which appear to be creating a clone army of yellowy goodness (I promise we did not use growth enhancers to speed up the maturation process).
See you on Fatherhood Friday,
May the Garden Be With You!
