Tending To My Vegetables (Not A Euphemism)

In the greenhouse: Seedlings after 2 months
Let me begin by making a du`a that your life is teaching you the greatest things you need. And may Allah help you learn them.
Right. I haven't shared the developments of my eco-garden for almost a month, and alhamdulillah, what a truckload of developments we've had. New things have sprouted, colours appeared and shapes have bulged. And that was just me.
I planted a variety of vegetable seeds in February-April in my greenhouse and garden. If you don't have a garden, get a large container for herbs or join an allotment group (they're really fun). From June to now, July, many vegetables have grown and been eaten, but I want to share with you what happened during the in-between time:
CORN! 8 inches tall (easier to care for than I thought)
I don't know why this image of tomato plants has 'yellowed' on screen.
They are a lush green shade. Tut.
Runner beans grown in biodegradable cardboard pots.
Peas have great character. Fiddly, curly leaves, with a tendency to grow 'wobbly' and shoots that latch onto the nearest objects. They're very clingy.
A quick dash to the compost heap!
Unusual growth from a cucumber plant that decided to grow out of a tear. Note how it's growing vertical. All things point upwards.
I love how these things already know what to do.
Refer to Qur'an, 96:3-5
From a seed to a plant. This is a metaphor for charity. Subhan'Allah.
So that was what's inside my greenhouse (also not a euphemism).
In mid-June I took the plants outside to their new home.
Peace and wholesome jihad.
