I realized I never gave an update on what I did with the available space in my vegetable garden this weekend.
I looked at quite a few different places in town and was just starting to think I would never find any seed and would have to just skip it. But then I tried one of the big-box stores and they had quite a lot of seed left from this spring.
So I bought about 10 packets of Black Seeded Simpson leaf lettuce (at 20 cents each). When I got home, Trevor had pulled out the spent and bolting lettuce plants already, and I had about a half-row of space to seed.
So that was pretty exciting.
I will be interested to see what sort of yield I get and if they actually do have time to come up and do much before our first frost. It’s been a weird year, weather-wise, so I’m thinking we’ll either have a hard frost the beginning of September or not until the end of October. It probably won’t be an “average” year, I’m just guessing.
And, since the lettuce obviously isn’t coming up yet, I thought that sharing a photograph of the bare spots might be just a tad bit lacking in interest. So here’s a picture of the Bird Bath Garden that I took on Monday.
