|look at the garden grow!!!|
|Can you count the number of zucchini on just this one plant?|
Everything is growing very well and the rain we received the last 3 mornings should help keep it up. The gardeners this week have started to notice a few differences in the two sides. One is the number of flowers and fruit growing on the zucchini plants seem to be greater on the rain barrel side. Not by much - but there is a difference. Also they noticed that the bean plants seemed to be fuller on the rain barrel side as well. We will have to keep and eye out to see if those differences become even bigger.
|flower on left and bean on right? you decide!|
Speaking of beans - we found what we think to be a bean starting to grow. What do you think?
The corn wins in my book for the biggest and the smallest change (that I missed on first inspection)
And now for the change that I read about in the data collection book and had to go back to get a picture of...drum-roll please!
Tiny little ears of corn have started to grow! One thing to note about this is that while they are growing on the two remaining plants on the rain barrel side - I could not see any on the rain only side...yet. We will have to keep our eyes peeled!
One last thing I would like to mention is the weeds - oh do we have weeds. If you look at the first picture you can see them in the background. To combat these unwanted plants we have decided to do a large scale weeding tomorrow (Monday) at noon. So if you are free and would like to get a closer look at whats growing and help pull a few weeds - stop on down to New Century School. I will bring drinks and a few snacks - but you may want to bring some glove to wear and any tools you may think will help. Hope to see you there!!
