The coldness has given way to a full-force onslaught of sun and serotonin (see wilting tomato plant above). I've also (today) begun (what is hopefully) a routine of waking before sunrise to tend the vegetables. I am trying to be home more as the cultivated area of the garden is growing in size (more photos of that soon!). This is thanks to our new handydude and garden-helper Jake. No longer do I live in fear that all plants will die when I travel.
There a few firsts now in the garden. First curry flowers and berries!
First mangoes (Indian ones)!
And lots of lovely little mustard and radish seedlings!
