Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

05 Aug

Every Friday, the fine folk over at The Daily Post issue a weekly photo challenge. This weeks challenge is Growth.

Growth. These small (believe me, they were small) grapes in Napa Valley are getting ready for the harvest later this fall, when they will be turned into wine. Plants, animals, people, grow…but so can buildings, shadows, and waves. What can you share that makes the viewer think of growth?

Last Sunday (29th July) was National Tree Day, and I chose to spend the time in the garden, replanting for spring. I planted up some herbs…

I have been quite taken to cooking with sage recently, so I made sure i got some in my herb bed for this season.

I always have tomatoes but for this season, I’ve only planted cherry tomatoes as I love the texture and size of them. And sweetness, oh so sweet….

My poor leeks, though, are really struggling. They always get eaten way before their time, and I am not the one eating them!

And here is the culprit! Kitty adores to eat the new growth in the garden and the leeks are her personal favourite.

    I had to put a fence around my vegetable garden to keep the tortoise out! So funny…these creatures think we’re growing for them, don’t they! Debra

    Naughty kitty! At least kitty doesn’t pull out your plants and eat them (like Earl does…sigh…)! What lovely photos and full of the hope of spring. Down here in freezing cold Tasmania at least things are green I guess…one day it will warm up a bit and we will start to think that it might just be spring around the corner and your lovely photos give me hope that pretty soon we will be able to break through the frosty ground and plant our own veggies and herbs 🙂

      the idea of frost is so foreign to me up here in the sub-tropics right on the coast. Its good though and my plants are double that size in a week!

        Now you are trying to make me envious! Our poor plants are just to the budding up stage here and I think that they might be thinking about heading back into their stems as its been snowing late here in Tasmania!

          Totally foreign concept to me. You are on your own! =)
