My melons have doubled in size!!
Ha ha. Seriously, though, they're twice as tall as they were this morning. This crazy-hot weather we're having has given everything a nice boost. A week ago I was a little worried that everything was too small, too far behind, but now things are looking pretty good. I have a flat of tomatoes in four-packs, two of brassicas of various sizes, two of melons in four-inch pots, one of morning glories and moonflowers in two-inch pots, one of delicious lettuces, and even one full of tiny eggplants and peppers who finally decided to give it a go, along with a few odds and ends... I'm feeling decidedly better about our prospects. Maybe we'll be able to eat this year, after all.
