My beets are being a bit persnickety, and I'm not sure if it's a water or sunlight issue that is keeping them from really doing their thing. The reds, and golden are looking okay, but the chiogga haven't done much in the past few months. They're quite pathetic, actually. New radish sprouts are coming up, and the snow peas are in bloom. I planted several snow peas, mainly for the leaves. Snow pea leaves are one of the most delicate, and amazing things I've ever eaten. I first had them at First Chinese BBQ, and am hooked! We get an order of them every time we go up there--which is about every two weeks--for duck. I'm going tonight in fact...
I came home on Tuesday to a surprise: my landlord and his son had rebuilt my log cabin style compost heap with all new landscaping wood. They even drilled holes through each piece, securing the whole thing in the ground with rebar. It's not going anywhere, hell, I may slap a rough roof on it and let it to an unsuspecting undergrad.
Break it down.
I'll now have enough compost to get me through the apocalypse. Anyone need to hide a body?
