One spinach seed germinated. Just one. I wonder why. It lives a life of green solitude, with only a little nicotiana for company (which evaded my weeding). The seeds were sown about 4 weeks ago. Slow and solid.
Meanwhile the fava beans are beginning to break the surface, the rainbow chard are all up, and so are the dwarf kale and the salad mix. Waiting for the peas. Tomorrow I'll take out another tomato - the Brandywines are now well and truly pooped - which will leave space for...parsnips?
Such a long wait, for parsnips. February.
And tomorrow? A true holiday. We're Zip Car-ing to the North Fork. I haven't been anywhere in weeks and not out of town proper for months, and Vince is hungry for water. So it's a little blue vacation. I hope it will be blue.
It's one of the bluest places I've ever seen. If I had a star I'd wish upon it for a house, there.
