I've been understandably discouraged by the garden. With the soggy chilly spring we've had, I was sure the seeds had rotted in the ground. Two days ago, during a break in the weather, I thought I'd try weeding. I went out to find pools of water where some beans should be.
Walking was a nightmare - it was like quicksand.
Well, quickmud. Yes, that's my boot sinking in.
Today was dry and we actually got up to 79 degrees(!), a delightful change. This afternoon, with the ground a bit drier, I went out and spent hours weeding.
And guess what I found! Onions! Quite a few, in fact.
The beans aren't so numerous, but I found a handful, bravely struggling upward.
So maybe there's hope for the garden after all. Standby.
