knee high before summer...

...much less july...the maize in the garden is past my left knee...a folk measure of crop health that we have passed after only thirty-one days...a few days ago there was only one squash plant in leaf and another just breaking the surface of the there are eleven up along the three sister's bed ( second photo )...the pole bean plant in the third photo is extending its vine and will ( perhaps with a little help ) soon find the maize behind it for support...fern's pod corn is enjoying the warmth and moisture and using it to its own purposes...we have had a season going on for some time, move and all...that season is going through an irruption with the plant population now up to two hundred and twenty-seven individuals from sixteen varieties of food is more impressive in person...stop by might happen on a gardener.
