Today’s harvest: “Green garlic”, garlic scapes, Touchon carrots (the slowest of the 3 varieties I grew but sweet and tasty), pineapple tomatillos, and Sparkle strawberries.
Sown today: Red and yellow watermelons, and Minnesota Midget cantaloupe.
Watered today: The vegetable garden, the pond garden, the blue fountain garden, the popcorn, the trumpet flower bed, the rasberry/strawberry bed, the Cassia/garage bed, some of the sidewalk garden, and the natives bed. I’d complain about not getting enough rain lately (we’ve only had 0.4" so far this month and last month was dry too) but every time I start to I think of complaining, I then think of the folks like flowerweaver in Texas and then I bite my tongue!
