First day of spring was a perfect time to replenish the raised beds for another season of garden greens and beans. Shellita, Dah-wei, Sarah, and a white-haired professor spread a few hundered pounds of organic compost and then planted redleaf lettuce, mustard, radishes, tatsoi, mustard, peas (for cutting as pea shoots), arugula, spinach, and did I say mustard? We have a lot of mustard seed that’s why.
It was beyond blustery up there, and so we talked about sending up a kite from the roof. If this fierce wind continues, someone will need to drag a hose out and sprinkle these seeds; and if it is Shellita up there, someone better go with her to keep her from sailing away. Like the red baloon.
