Work in the Garden

This morning I doused all the plants with "manure tea", with thanks to my helper on the other side of the fence.  I pruned the suckers off the tomatoes and planted some more marigold seeds.  

The broccoli is noticeably bigger, and so are the kale plants.  The brussels sprout seeds have sprouted.  The leeks & celery look good.  I think there are buds on the watermelon plants.

On inspection, we've seen a couple of asparagas shoots begin to appear, which is a relief, because we were beginning to wonder if they'd ever sprout.  There is also some life on some of the strawberry plants, which were both planted as roots. 

I got a shot of curly endive, too--reminds me of a chia pet or a green 'fro.
