We all survived the first two days of kindergarten, and I shed fewer tears than expected. Guess I got it all out of my system well in advance of the big day.... not having him home for lunch has been the biggest adjustment for me. He has always been home for lunch!
The saved seeds were rinsed and set out to dry last night. My garlic arrived on Friday (Chet's Italian Red) though it is too early to plant it out by my calculations. Not much going on in the garden. Seedlings are emerging, the squash under row cover are much happier, and the eggplant and peppers continue to be frozen in time. I should either cover them up or rip them out. I am trying to let my beans mature and dry for seed, but possible disease and bug damage are making a mess of them.
The ground around the sweet potato vines is beginning to rise and crack, that must a good sign. I have looked it up so many times, but I can never remember when to harvest them. (Soon or do I wait until we are due for a frost??)
