It has been anomalously wet this spring. 22 days with rain in April, 21 in May, 15 in June. That’s about a week more rain each month than last year. I have watered the garden just once this spring. I can’t tell yet if my ollas are working. They just haven’t had to.
My cool crops have been happy (kale, bok choi, onions), but the rest have suffered and are much smaller than they should be by now. Some of my hot plants have been downright miserable (eggplant). The basil up and died.
Nonetheless, we move forward, delighting in what cometh.

Ching chiang (aka shanghai bok choi). I was so proud to produce these beautiful, delicious plants.

Blueberries! Raspberries and strawberries are already in.

Jen, that bok choi pic is gorgeous. Bet it tasted just as good!
