I had blank spots in the garden. I hate blank spots.
I need to learn spots are blank for reasons.
The side yard, with a good deal of sun, was empty, so I transplanted some broccoli seedlings. I know these won't mature before frost, but I'm hopeful that if I cover them, they should work out. Hopeful....Ok, it's not going to happen, but it's green and it's there for now.
I also transplanted some lettuce hoping against hope (yet again) that the chupacabra in the back yard is gone. These went in on Saturday. Two are already gone, but the majority of the rest have been descimated since this picture was taken either by the incessant rain (we're getting 2-5 MORE inches tomorrow) or those blasted acorns that pulverize everything in their path. Lettuce, I'm afraid, is a spring crop for me.
I did manage to cook those zipper peas this weekend...okay, I didn't have enough zipper peas (the green ones) to cook on their own so I threw them in with some field peas, but they weren't so bad. You could tell the difference in the taste between the two, the zipper peas were more buttery in texture, but they were good none the less.
Hopefully the rain won't cause any more severe flooding like what we just got done with. My fingers are crossed.
