Sow: turbo harvest

Whew! Is it bad that I’d like another day to add to my long weekend? Or at least to today?

thank you to those who have served, are serving, and will serve

We got closer to final on two large-ish DIY projects:

Cabinets installed in lounge. Temporary countertop from previous cabinet in place for now.

After all that, Bruce quickly cut the grass (with all the rain it grew 4 inches this week) and I headed to the urban farm to do a little grocery shopping.

One special thing for today besides feeding the composter tons of rain wrecked lettuce: purple beans

not sure why one was green

they turn green when you cook them (blanched them with a few peas)

just a few peas tonight

I also planted basil, pulled up the last of the spinach, found some rouge basil that must have seeded itself from fall’s crop, and staked one of the pepper plants.

Sure was nice to spend a little time digging in the dirt. See why I’d like another day?
