I got way too busy for a couple of weeks, and it decided to get hot right in the middle of that time -- so of course various things in my early salad stuff have bolted like crazy. [Arugula](crop) flowers are, first of all, surprisingly beautiful. I know this isn't meant to be a site for ornam...Read more
I originally wanted to do this yesterday but it rained in the morning so that kinda put a damper on things. So I did it all today instead!
