Yesterday, I prepped the area by turning over the top few inches of soil (the weeds were so bad, I am now calling them a cover crop - wink). The digging was a chance to think. I should have dealt with the problem sooner, but I chose to ignore it thinking that "things" would surely be happening soon... Yesterday, it was blatantly obvious (after some quick calculating of days in my head) that there was NO way that corn (even if it did germinate) would be harvest ready before the first frost. So... the decision was made to "cull" what few little plants were growing and move on. The Lincoln Homesteader peas have been soaking overnight, and they'll be planted ceremoniously today marking a fresh start for the garden and for me.
Slow down today, and "listen" to your garden.. is it quietly telling you that something is amiss?
