State of the Garden Address: Welcome To The Jungle

Here are a few pictures of the garden as it stands. We had a cool spring and then lots of rain. Two nights ago it rained so hard, it woke 4 out of 5 of us up. I have heard we got anywhere from 2 to 4 inches overnight in the area. Crazy! That is the reason that everything, weeds included, has grown to epic proportions. I can't really say if the garden is going to have epic yields though.


This is James' corn patch. The really tall stuff is Broom Corn, which is technically not corn. James made a hand broom out of this stuff last year at Farm Hands and wanted to grow his own. He is also growing a really pretty Indian corn and some beans. And least I think there are still beans under there.


James is burrowing into the tomato tangle to find a snack.


Where's Waldo? Can you spot James and Katie? They are both in there somewhere.


This is the monster pumpkin that so far looks like its all show. Either the pumpkins are hiding or this is going to make one massive snack for the chickens.


Here you can get an idea of how tall the broom corn is.


Proof that there is indeed something coming forth from all the foliage!
