We have beets and carrots and onions making a strong appearance. Even some lettuce. Cabbage failed to appear despite two plantings. Spinach showed up and then mysteriously bit the dust.
So yeah, about my month long absence.... I guess "while I was gone" isn't quite accurate. More like "How I took a tiny break from the garden and that snowballed into a solid month of avoidance during which time Bill from the Extension diligently watered and even planted more greens and I'm a rotten leaker."
Yeah, guilt. I'm good at that. Dropping the ball? Yup, sadly sometimes I do that too.
