Well, another day in paradise! Gorgeous sunny weather after a week of rain and flash floods. Last week’s work in the garden made a difference—fewer weeds, thriving plants, and sprouting squash. Last week I took lettuces and radishes. This week, those were in evidence again, plus chard and kale.
Another gardener came by and took some of the chard off my hands. I’m going to have to gear up to eat a lot of greens in the next few weeks while other vegetables come on. Last year, I was darn glad when I started getting zucchini, tomatoes and peppers. For now, I’m eating more salads than usual—all good.
And then there are the flowers! I still have a profusion, though they’re starting to fade. I forgot to take a vase and didn’t have my water bottle either, but they seem to have weathered the trip home. I have flowers for three rooms!
