The Garden Plot
Things have been unusually cool on the prairies so the gardens are quite a bit behind. We're finally eating lettuce, spinach, Swiss charge and beet tops, and today I saw that I have little cousas, and my heirloom Italian zucchini is starting to make little ribbed squashes.
That's in the backyard. Out at the allotment things aren't so good. For one thing, it's over an hour round trip to get there by bike; 50 minutes by automobile, so I don't monitor the place as closely as I'd like.
Something weird's happening out there. I have a few potatoes that haven't created plants. I dug around the place where I planted them and found that new potatoes are forming, but for some reason no shoots sprang up. I've never seen that before.
