mid summer in our garden.
beginnings and endings.
beginnings: lush green growth of corn that seems to grow half a foot every day, new hollyhocks inching their way ever taller, sweet zuchinnis, beans climbing bit by bit, entangling themselves to their supports, basil for pesto, green butternut pumpkins baking in the sun and a tree full with green unripe figs.
endings: lots of seeds on worn out, dried out plants. i am leaving them all as long as i can and trying not to mind the messy look too much. my hope is that they drop their seeds and next season there will be lots of new plants for free.
