The gardens have had a steady rate of growth over the past week, but the corn has flourished with every drop of water that has come in contact with it. The amaranth plants have also grown good, as well as the beans. The melons such as the gourds and the watermelons have had steady growth too. But our cotton hasn’t really grown as well as we thought it would. We have critters that like to visit the garden such as lizards, squirrels, insects and Road Runners. We actually also found the need to pull many of the weeds that have found space to grow in the garden. We water the garden every day and look forward to seeing the plants grow to their fullest.
