July 17 Measurements

Look how much the tomato plants have grown! Thirty to forty inches!

Jude’s corn is, of course, doing what Iowa corn does in the summer… but it is still amazing to consider what a little corn seed grew into.

The boys’ gardens are full and lush. We look back at pictures of their newly planted gardens where you can still see dirt in each square. Green beans and pea plants have spread out and up. Herbs have filled out their squares. And some plants – the tomatoes and cucumbers, of course – can dominate their space and move into others. We are having a great growing season!
