2 weeks

Out of town for 2 weeks, I came home to a jungle. 2 days after the second picture was taken, my scarlet red runner beans are now up to the deck, and over the rail. If you don't hear from me for awhile, they probably enveloped me in their tendrils.

It's a work in progress, but we're getting there-

Before & after, Scarlet Red Runner Bean, 2012

Different angles from the garden below, but you get the idea. The wall of beans really cooled down the under the deck area. Ideal for swinging alone and/or hiding lots of junk.

Da da duuuum

Yes, it's only January but I cannot resist. Started some seeds in my growhouse today. Coleus. They can take 10-20 days to germinate and often don't come up at all, so wanted to get a head start just in case.

Next up - broccoli, spinach, milkweed...
