I'm not sure they'll amount to much, but they sure have grown a lot since I cut the stem off.
I haven't been out in the yard much over the past week since it's usually dark when I get home, even with the time change, but I got off work before dark today and was able to do a walk-around. I was surprised to find an eggplant growing. I thought it had fallen off:

I'm pretty tickled about this discovery - my longevity spinach is getting ready to flower!
My pigeon peas are still going crazy - lots of pods and still flowering like mad:
I've tried several times to get a picture that shows how large this pigeon pea bush is but I just can't capture it. Of course it might have something to do with the fact that I'm an idiot with a camera(phone). There's too much other greenery in and around it to sort it all out. But you can see the brown pods all over the place. I've filled a pint jar so far and I'm fairly certain I'll get at least another pint of dried peas this season. Meanwhile, I have 3 more plants just coming up and if the other seeds I've planted come up as well, I'll end up with about 8 more plants, in addition to the 4 growing now. That should do the trick!
And these salvia are starting to come back to life. I didn't have the heart to pull them when they stopped blooming. Love these!
My corn didn't do well, unfortunately, so I pulled it today. This area doesn't get much sun and the corn didn't get watered nearly enough. I have an experiment in mind for this little area though. I'll plant a few Moringa and Pigeon pea seeds on the north edge, and longevity spinach and vegetable amaranth in the rest of the bed. I think it will be an interesting experiment! These are the plants I love best in my garden. Just set 'em and forget 'em (mostly). And they'll grow through the summer. Win win!
