Days to Maturity

One of the most interesting things about gardening is how freakishly accurate “days to maturity” is for plants. I have beans and squash that are about to come in this week just about to the day on the seed package.

As the mother of a proto-adult male, I’m thinking wistfully that it’d be nice if he came with a days to maturity date.

I'm Jenny Smith. I keep up with three cars, two kids, one husband, and I live on 300+ acres of rolling farmland in Northern Virginia where we look after an elderly relative. I like tomatoes, all things Star Trek, watercolor, and reading. I spend most days in the garden fighting deer and groundhogs as I pursue a graduate degree. I'm trying to be like Jesus -- emphasis on the trying.
