It’s been a slow week.
It’s been a wet week.
It’s been a dreary week.
…things will soon be looking up!
As you can probably tell, we don’t have much to report this week. The weather kept us indoors for much of the week and the entire weekend. Right now, most everything in the garden is overly wet and in stasis. (Except for the greens. Most of them do fine in cool weather. The radishes are also flourishing.)
Things are growing, but they been growing very slowly. Nothing new has gone in, and we found that a rabbit (or two or more) had gotten into net cage covering our bed of peas. It (or they) took out a good couple of rows of pretty little pea seedlings before deciding they’d had enough. 😦 Alas. The peas aren’t done for good, however. We’re hopeful that they’ll bounce back now that we’ve fixed the hole in the net cage that we discovered much too late.
So we’ve had a few setbacks this year. But! Summertime temperatures will soon be to the rescue! A few days of 80-degree days are in our forecast this week, so the hope is that they soil will warm up and dry out enough in order for us to get the rest of the planting done this coming weekend — squash, beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, and yes, even a few peppers!
That’s the plan, anyway. Mother Nature has a mind of her own, as we all know, but we are hoping for the best.
Signing off this week with a picture of a duck on a roof in our neighborhood. Because who’s not going to take a picture of a duck on the roof of a house!
