This year I've decided to turn what was my strawberry bed into a vegetable bed. I'd cleared the space back in December before the weather got wet and wild, but hadn't planted anything in it. This bed is roughly 4' x 6' (maybe a bit bigger). In the middle is a small flowering cherry tree, but there's still a good amount of planting space around it and it gets almost full sun.
I've started some broccoli raab and bell pepper seeds indoors and some mesclun outdoors, but because I'm trying to do the 100-ft diet challenge, I wanted to get something growing faster. So yesterday I purchased three six-packs--one each of broccoli, beets, and spinach. It's not a lot, but at least it's a start. And at least I managed to get them in the ground yesterday during an ever-so-brief break in the rain.
The rain is driving me crazy. It's not that we're having an abnormal amount of rain for this time of year. But because so many of the last 25 years have been drought years, this much nearly continuous rain seems abnormal. I know we need it, but I'm so ready for it to be over with.
