How does your garden grow? 2013 season

Last year, I started taking pictures of my vegetable garden out the kitchen window with the intent of creating a stop-motion movie of it growing over the warm season. That didn’t end up happening for a long stretch of time, thanks to reality intruding on my plans. However, I did save enough for the photo gallery below.

Interesting to note that last year, the snow was on the ground well into April, whereas this year it already looks like May outside. I’m going to set a repeating alarm on my phone starting this weekend, to remind me to take a picture at the same time every week, and hope for an animation by the end of the year.

  1. I’ve wanted to take photos of the sunset every day with the same idea in mind, and also failed. We have a 6th floor apartment with full west view, so it’s interesting to see where the sun sets in December versus where it sets in June.

    Dec……………………………………………………………………………………………….June

    • Wow, you must have an awesome view! I would love to see your results if you ever get around to trying this 😉 We were only on the third floor when we had an apartment, so couldn’t see nearly as much. The hubby suggested I just convert my old barely-touched mini netbook into a webcam. Download a timed photo-taking app and just leave it running, etc. It’s seeming more and more like a good idea. He also wants to use it in the winter to spy on the backyard and try to figure out what critter has been leaving the big paw marks around (he’s hoping for a lynx, I think it’s a dog :-P). I bet you have an old phone/laptop or something that could probably be called into service too!
