More is happening on the edge …
You may get down on yourself from time to time because you have a total failure with some particular crop. Sometimes you plant something and it just doesn’t work or some evil little creature comes along and chews it up. When that happens I cheer myself up by looking to something I planted that produced a huge yeild. It reminds me that I am both competent and that the forces of nature are not conspireing against me.
This year it is arugula and swiss chard, among other things. My little four rows of leafy greens have gone crazy – especially the arugula. I’m cutting from this bed as often as I can but it doesn’t seem to make a dent.
All I can say is, thank God someone thought up arugula pesto because that only way I can think to deal with all these leaves is to make some.
