I have enjoyed exploring my gardens after my absence. I was away about a week. Everything has grown. I had a list of tasks to catch up on: the tomatoes needed tying, potatoes and summer squashes needed fences, spring lettuce needed pulling, and fall lettuce needs planting. The pole beans needed stakes and a sun flower stem needed a support. Of course, the weeds needed pulling and the garden watering.
And then there were so many photos that needed taking, flowers to admire, squash and cukes to harvest, and just generally time to catch up on and enjoy in the garden.
