Back on track

June 2, 2010

Everything died, and nothing is growing. There I said it.

It’s been a few months of craziness at work and with vacation, but I’m ready to get back on track with the garden. All my seedlings died because I started them indoors too early, and then didn’t take care of them. So I’m starting from scratch.

Before we went on vacation for a week, I sprinkled some arugula seeds in the Suburban Farm, plus a few other lettuce varieties. Results?


Arugula, for sure. Everything else? Not so much. Just one red Romaine sprout. I’ll try one more time, maybe in a dappled sun area. And if that doesn’t work, I’ll wait ’till late in the season. But the Bright Lights Swiss chard is finally breaking ground. That’ll be beautiful when it’s up and tall.

The peas I started in the beginning of spring are doing OK. I tried putting them at the back of the house, and I guess it’s not the ideal place. There isn’t enough sun. I’ll do a second sowing this week in a sunnier location, which is precious real estate on our property.


I’m just glad the nice weather is here. It’s a joy to watch the warm golden rays reach across the yard.

    Oh peas won’t like the hot weather we’re transitioning into now. You’ll have to wait and do a fall crop.

    If you can not best up, the broker sells the exposure and keeps your margin.
