I am continually amazed at the garden. Today I took the pruning sheers to the tomato plants. They are covered in fruit and I read that side shoots (just stems with leaves that don't produce fruit) should be pruned off and that each piece of fruit should be in the sun, not covered and shaded by leaves. Well my plants are way too close together, were covered in leaves, and most of the fruit wasn't getting any sun. I hope I didn't shock the four big fellows but I can see all my fruit now and all of my fruit can see the sun. (also look at the growth of that sunflower in just 10 days!)
The fact that just a few months ago I planted these four small seeds in some dirt in an egg carton that sat on my kitchen window sill and now I have these enormous healthy plants that are covered in green roma tomatoes just astonishes me. I intend to keep gardening through the years and I wonder if the miracle of life that's contained in simple seeds will always seem so miraculous to me. I am thoroughly amazed by it.
