It looks as though many of the comments from the 11th and later are gone. Maybe they will eventually reappear. I'm just happy we're all able to post again!
It's not like I have a lot to say. The garden is growing slowly, as we can't seem to have more than one or two warm days in a row. We should be in the high 70s to low 80s by mid-May, and the forecast has us plunging down into the low to mid 60s for the rest of this week. With the cool spring we've had, I couldn't believe my eyes yesterday when I saw this......
Not one, but two baby tomatoes on one of the Bloody Butcher plants, seeds courtesy of Mr. H.
Yesterday I pulled all the spinach from one of the unprotected-by-netting areas. The leaf miners are worse than I've ever seen them, and it was taking more time to clean the egg clusters from the backs of the leaves than the crop was worth. I used the space to plant four three-foot rows of carrots. The second unprotected spinach bed will be pulled today, but I'm not yet sure what will be planted in its place. Next year spinach will only be planted under row covers.
