I just came in from trying to hill up the potatoes. They got super-tall (overnight, I think), about a foot high, and really need to be hilled up for the first time.
But the no-see'ums are so bad out there this afternoon that I quit and ran for my life after doing just the one row above.
The temp today made it only into the low 70s but we had about 110% humidity with a low, low pressure system making it very gray and miserable all day. You felt sweaty, but cold at the same time. And the bugs . . .eeeeek!
I was gone all morning, didn't get home until noon. Made us a quick lunch; smoothie for
Went to get some things in a storage shed and had to spend some time doing a bit of sorting there just so we could get at what we needed. That shed HAS to be torn apart, sorted, cleaned, and organized this summer. I just don't know exactly when we'll get to it. But it's a must-do.
Took a quick tour of the garden and discovered these.
Whoa, wadishes! Our first produce from the garden this year. There are also scallions big enough to eat and I could have stolen some baby spinach leaves if I'd wanted. I love radishes. I love, love, love radishes. Wonder what it is in radishes that my system craves? Sulfur? My daughter would say it's dirt. Ever since she was small she's always maintained radishes taste just like dirt. (Wonder who force-fed her all that dirt so she knows what it tastes like?)
Look, look! My poor, little half frozen window box impatiens are coming to life.
Okay, so they're not exactly lush and gorgeous at this point but considering the fact that two weeks ago I was sure they were gonna shrivel up and die, I'm pleased as punch that they are looking this good now.
I'm hoping we're in for a change in the weather for tomorrow . . . less humidity, please. Warmth will be fine but could we have a nice, gentle breeze to keep the bugs away? 'Cause I sure could use a whole day spent out in the garden. Finishing up those remaining five rows of 'taters will be first. Then on to a kajillion other spots that need attention.
Gotta go rustle us up some dinner. Can't wait to crunch into those radishes.
