After being away for almost 3 weeks I was delighted to come home and see how quickly the garden has grown.

  1. Gorgeous! My Bok Choi went to seed too. I’m just going to let the seeds fall where they may and see what happens. It surprised me, though, because it never really matured. Your garden really looks fabulous!
