Community Gardening: Tomatoes, Zucchini, Squash, and a Haiku

Corvallis, Oregon

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted about the community garden. All is going well. Very well, in fact.

Last week, I planted four tomato plants, and a zucchini and squash plant; and the peas are growing delightfully.

Here are some recent pics.

The indoor starts are close. I am waiting one more week, just in case we get some rain; they are still small, so a large rain would be harmful.

Here is a pic of the indoor starts.

Yep. Planting the indoor starts next week. After that? Watch and tend. Beautiful.

And, here’s a haiku I created recently as I was contemplating the garden.

watch them grow, one and
then another, roots unfold,
take hold, then? behold
