This Week’s Veggies – Sept. 3rd – 7th

2013-09-02 15.07.19
Happy Labor Day to all! Maybe the rain kept you from laboring much today like it did me. When it finally stopped and I trudged outside to get a little work done, I wasn’t sure if I had stepped into a garden or a swamp.
As I pulled some amazingly adaptable weeds from around the delicate fall seedlings, I imagined that an invisible bulls eye had been hovering over the garden all season with every passing storm cloud zeroing in on it, releasing it’s moisture and moving on. The young spinach planting has been underwater more than once since it germinated a couple of weeks ago. We’ll need some drier conditions to get it from the ground to our tables.
Nature hasn’t always worked in favor of the garden this year, but it’s still been a fascinating privilege to watch it work up close.
