I May Have Triffids
The garden is growing unbelievably fast, in spite of the lack of rain. We have had several weeks of warm, sunny weather, which of course is a blessing, but our water tanks are being depleted a little too quickly.
Ooh, quick, look, is that a garden gnome? Awfully cute in that straw hat...
I fear these are triffids, not the tomatoes that were promised on the seed package. Any day now they will unroot and start roaming the countryside, hanging out at malls and terrorizing seniors. Oh right, that would make them teenagers, not extraterrestrial beings. Maybe I just need to prune.
