I used to visit and revisit it a dozen times a day, and stand in deep contemplation over my vegetable progeny with a love that nobody could share or conceive of who had never taken part in the process of creation. It was one of the most bewitching sights in the world to observe a hill of beans thrusting aside the soil, or a rose of early peas just peeping forth sufficiently to trace a line of delicate green.

Both our potatoes and beans have blooms. I am so excited!
Our squash, both the zucchini and yellow crook-neck, has blooms and baby squash coming on.
We have tomatoes coming on too.
Good thing we have full time school for another week after today. I have a feeling I am going to be busy!
