Around the Farm
"Darn you lettuce!" she says shaking her fist at the sky.
Apparently, the lettuce mix we planted is incredibly unhappy with the up and down swings in temperatures and decided to prematurely go to seed... This makes it tougher, more bitter and generally unharvestable. There is another planting on the way shortly though!
We've also been battling bunnies in the lettuce, who think we conveniently planted a salad bar in front of their home, just for their consumption. My dog, Maggie, is also confused by this cotton-tailed assumption so, she aims to correct their mistake. How nice of her?
Ah well... we've decided to focus our efforts on preparing for the summer crops that are looking larger and more luscious as the days pass. The peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, potatoes, melons, cucumbers and sweet corn are all absolutely loving this combination of rain and heat. The carrots are slowly but, surely, marching along toward harvest and the onions have begun to bulb in acceptance of the passing of spring into summer.
Happy Summer All!
