. . .
Guess what? Nope. Guess again. Nope. Okay, I’ll tell you – we had sun this weekend! Almost two days worth. But there was a trade off. Yesterday, as we planted our containers (on a day which promised sun but instead delivered dark clouds), we could see our breath on the air. Yup. It was kinda like planting in March. Our hands were so frozen after arranging the plants in the containers, that I didn’t regain feeling in my fingers until bedtime.
On the plus side, things are happening in the veggie patch. The mesclun lettuce is starting to look like lettuce. Yup, real stuff-it-in-your-mouth lettuce. The peas are poking through, and we’ve got some strawberries in bloom. The onions are, as ever, thriving. We were feeling quite onion-proud until, when at Halifax Seed the other day, we saw onions spouting in their little mesh bags on the racks. Turns out onions will grow anywhere.
More rain forecast for much of this week – but with two shows coming up on the weekend, I’ll be up to my eyeballs in sequins and tulle. Here’s hoping you’ve had a happy weekend…
