Plantgasm - I love plants too much. By Derek Powazek.

Vegetable Garden Timelapse 3

A timelapse video of three weeks of growth in this year’s vegetable garden. The photos were taken from June 13 to July 2 … and then the batteries died. When things disappear it’s because they were dinner. If you pay close attention, you can see little bits of spinach disappear as caterpillars have dinner, too.

Very groovy, again!

(Sooo… did you not want to eat these beautiful greens you’re growing? That one pak choi up front actually goes to seed before the movie’s over.)

Chuck: I was eating as fast as I could! But, yeah, a few bolted before I got to them, when San Francisco had its brief flirtation with actual warm weather.

Just wonderful as always!! I first fell in love with your work when I saw your Amaryllis flick and the cool
song that you chose for it! Since then the “addiction”
was on ;)
