This is how the garden grows...

While we were on vacation for over 5 weeks, the garden was on its own with a timed sprinkler system for watering.  I had seeded, planted and fenced the garden before leaving.

Most of the plants survived!  Seeds germinated into plants, tomato plants were blooming and I could see a couple of small tomatoes, bean plants suffered from heat with yellow leaves and didn't grow much, fenugreek plants browned, peas were also beyond their harvesting and I collected some dried peas for replanting, chinese long beans were starting to put out tiny beans and blooming as well, peppers were growing. A couple of pepper plants did not make it, but overall I was happy with the way the garden grew in my absence.
