we tried a little gardening.
only a handful survived.
and we got enough to make one salad,
and a bunch to replant.
That's like 9 feet tall!
It's one of the fun things about gardening,
as certain plants attract certain insects.
I remember getting cool caterpillars
from my grandparents tomato plants.
The sunflowers had little nasty maggoty larva,
and the chard had some kind of aphid like creature.
I can see how difficult it is to grow organically.
and we still have stragglers continuing to grow.
The one carrot that survived,
is a huge seed making powerhouse.
that's been there for 2 days now.
There are 3 or 4 plants in here.
They are resilient to bugs,
and don't wilt in the heat.
