I wondered tonight "what’s in the fridge," forgetting that there might be something in the garden to prepare for dinner. I hauled my tired soul up there (all of a 150' trudge).
When I got to my oasis I was amazed at what I saw. Plants had quadrupled in size since I was there last (two days prior). I collected a ton of stuff for salad. Beet greens (never ate them before), romaine lettuce, three types of kale, each with their unique taste, and cabbage leaves. I saw the seeds that I planted for carrots, radish, cilantro, arugula had all come up in nice straight rows. I couldn't believe how fast they germinated. I'm a fan of seeds now- they are CHEAP and the varieties beat the hell out of varieties available as bedding plants.
