Hello again! This once a week library business is for the birds. I have 378 blogs to read, as well as 132 email messages. I've given up on ever catching up, and I'm not even going to try. It still doesn't look good for getting any direct internet connections for me this winter, so I guess it's a good thing I don't have a darned thing about which to blog anyway!
The spinach is growing slowly, radishes are looking quite healthy but no edible roots yet, the green onions in the pots are growing fast, I've thinned out the thousands of self-sown lettuce plants to give the remaining ones room to grow. They were all lettuce seedlings in the one garden bed for sure, but I still haven't identified the other self-sown seedlings that are growing everywhere else. I'm quite sure they must be alyssum, as they are sprouting from the soil I dumped from last year's flower pots. The few plants I had growing in pots in the garden had to be moved, as nothing that's not under the protective covering of plastic mesh is surviving. I've moved them up to a garden bench to keep them away from the lizards. All in all, I can't get too excited about gardening this winter!
I'm finding the time going way too slowly, and Granny is bored.
