The Late Movies: Time Lapse Garden
Oh, I'm still knee-deep in tomatoes and beans, and the rest of the garden is coming along nicely, too! If you don't have the time to watch a garden grow in real time, maybe you'll enjoy doing it in fast forward. Here are some wonderful time-lapse videos of growing plants.
Including the clocks was a nice touch.
It's blowing up like a balloon!
I kept wondering when the tubers were going to grow -and then the video was over! Maybe they don't grow well when sandwiched between plates of glass. This time lapse was only nine days long.
Ken Desrosiers photographed his chosen pumpkin every 15 minutes (automatically) for two months. Then he took it to the fair, where it weighed in at 1487.5 pounds! It set a state record in 2011.
This video wins the award for Most Appropriate Music.

These lovely dwarf sunflowers were grown inside under lights. Don't miss the part where the seeds mature!
This video was taken at Brooklyn Botanic Garden from April 18 to April 26, 2008. A photo was taken every three minutes during daylight hours.
And here's your reward for making it this far: a glorious riot of flowers blooming in a hurry!
