During the three hours I worked in the garden today...

• Three Violet Podded bean plants poked up through the soil.

• Three Lemon cucumbers emerged.

• A couple of rows of Cherry Belle and Watermelon radishes went through a visible growth spurt.

Try it sometime: A week or so after your last-frost date, look closely at the garden when you arrive, then look again when you leave. Count your seedlings. You will be truly amazed.
