Waiting for Godot... March 28, 2009

And Thank the Lord the rains are almost over...four solid days now of rain, rain, rain.... I know we will appreciate it this summer, but for now I am anguishing over the fate of my tiny carrot, beet, spinach and turnip seedlings outside. Will be up at dawn to check them out. The tomato seedlings are taking over the kitchen. Peppers not far behind. Collards in the beds outside are ready to start picking... try them with some rice vinegar and cornbread and its heaven on earth.

My new adventure will be container blueberry bushes - they arrived this week already in bloom. It will be painful to debud them, but from what I have read, necessary for their longterm health - like so much in life!

My carrots and beets haven't sprouted yet, so the worst I can expect is big clumps of carrots where the seeds washed.

My peas, garlic, onions and lettuce loved the rain though!

LOL, Tim- that is exactly what I now have - clumps of my Little Finger carrots divided by bare spots where the other seeds washed off!
