I’m going on a fantastic adventure to Bolivia for the next couple weeks, and I can’t help but feel a [tiny] bit sad that I’m going to come back and my garden will be almost an entirely different creature.
My cascade hops are now growing 6-12 inches a day, and even though I’ve strung up lines for them to crawl, I have no doubt when I get back I’ll have to reroute them.
By the time I get back, my lettuce and radishes will be ready to harvest, and I probably will not recognize my swiss chard, kale, and beets. My experimental square foot of oats and barley will probably have another foot or so on them (more on the grain, later), and my strawberries will have set fruit that might even be starting to ripen!
Every morning before I go to work, and every evening when I get home, I can’t help but stroll around and examine every bed for the tiniest changed details. So when I get back from this journey, I will have missed a lot…and that is just a little bit sad.
In any case, I gotta get to the airport, but here are some recent pics of the yard:
I am so-very excited for this trip. Catchya in two weeks!
