What a difference TWO weeks makes!

I see my garden day-after-day, so sometimes, it's difficult to truly track the growth.

That's why I take photos.

So today, here are some photos of then and now, with then being about two weeks ago, and the now being this morning.

First up to bat: My fingerling potatoes! Here is them then. They were barely poking up.

Here they are today!

I mean, really, there is some serious growth. They are pushing on the netting! I need to hill them (I did not get to that this weekend).

Next up, my Yukon gold potatoes. Now these were up a bit more than the fingerlings two weeks ago:

Here they are now!

Truly monstrous beasts that keep growing larger!

Next: My broccoli. These were planted as seedlings that I started indoors. In this picture, they are all about 1-1.5" tall.

And now check them out!

And, now, my sugar snap peas. Here they are, happily growing, on the trellis. I thought they were tall here.

But here they are today! Growing, bending, 3'+ tall things!

And finally, my spinach. Here they are, barely after sprouting.

And today, we could eat them! Granted, we'd have baby leaves to eat, but we could still eat spinach. That amazes me.
Here's a close-up of the rapidly-growing spinach.

Seeing the growth is so enjoyable. I can't wait to get the rest of my beds planted and going!
