I arrived back from India to a garden I didn't recognize. All the plants were tiny three weeks ago and now they are huge. The Swiss chard is ready to be picked. There are a few green tomatoes and some tiny cucumbers.
In India, it was dry with an average temperature of 110. I had visions of my garden withering away from heat and lack of rain while I was gone.
My friend who was caring for my garden said she didn't have to do anything. It has been a wet and warm so far this summer
