This year, as in years past, I went out to the garden in early spring to see what the retreating snow had left. I surveyed the area and vowed that this time, I would leave more than enough room for everything to grow, with plenty of space to navigate between the rows for an easy harvest. As you can see, once again my well laid plans have come undone. Although there will be a bountiful harvest, the rainiest July on record caused a profusion of growth that has blanketed the area with a carpet of green and caused the tomato plants to intertwine and become like hedges. Quite a transformation from March(photo on the left) to August(right) wouldn't you say?
