Weeding, Watering, and Wandering

Spent yesterday morning over at the allotment garden. As you can see, the weeds have been enjoying the waterings, too, so it was time.

Time for the tools of mass destruction.

They made short work of the weeds, after which the edamame was a lot more visible.

As you can see, they've each got two round true leaves, and are starting to develop their sets of three leaflets. From what I've read, I think I can expect all the rest of the leaves to be compound triplets.

After weeding and watering, I wandered around the whole garden, admiring what people have done on their plots. I'll put up a bunch of pictures shortly on Flickr. Until then, here's a sample -- a bumblebee on a hollyhock.
