Time for the monthly jasmine update; according to the slick salesperson at the garden store, my jasmine plants should have “doubled in size” by now. Well, that certainly didn’t happen. But there is definitely some growth happening here, and I think it’s because it rained. Don’t get me wrong, I water the garden on a regular basis, but there’s something about rain which stimulates a garden into overdrive. Like, it rained, I went out the next day, and the northernmost plant had put out six inch tendrils literally overnight. I could practically hear it growing.
