I had an eventful weekend, so to keep gentle readers amused whilst I catch up, here's a bean poll.
My pole beans have been behaving very strangely this year, none more so than this sprout emulating the St. Louis Gateway Arch*. It's been like that for five weeks. The stem gets thicker and thicker (see a normal stem in the background), but it doesn't lift its head out of the ground. DH thinks I should "help" it. I'm inclined to wait and see what it will do on its own. What do you think?
My first tomato suffered a setback. It's almost ripe now, and that has not escaped notice.
Dang birds. Ah well, c'est la jardinage.
* The Arch frames the Old Courthouse, where the Dred Scott case was heard before going to the U.S. Supreme Court, 150 years ago.
