IS That The Question?
According to the peas, not really...
Not too soon to be planted, that is. A mite tough to see from this picture
but there are ten peas a-peain' down here.
These went in the clay about ten or so days ago, by some stairwork that'll provide a great natural trellis.
A week or so later the tiller were borrowed, and new beds laid and hoed. [Quit! I gots pictures!! Hey, I'll plow 'em all over the yard if'n I so choose!! You know I will...]
From the new bed's perspective, though, certainty is a bit more, ah... Schrodinger.
Here're the rows before it was a dark and stormy night:
Then came the rains
and washed the rows away. Thus the row-row-row-your-boat look apres.
I won't yet cop to spreading seed too early. I did hope to see some leafy veggie sprouts by now, but I dinna expect two nights' worth of swimming pool fill pouring from the heavens. The seed may be a bit more sporadically spread, but they're watered in well, and we've got a few days of soil-warming sunshine on the way. I mean, worst case scenario, I harvest instant mix-- no need to toss the salad! har!!
Okay, folk, I done given you enough imagery for the night.
If not, well, spanx or no, come on over! I gots plenty o' seed and bed-space!!! HARARARRR!!!
Saratoga Star Spring, Saratoga, NY. ca. 1865.
