So, I am pretty sure we have gotten over a foot of rain in the last week or so, which means the weeds are very happy and I haven't gotten into the garden at all, but I promise to update on Sunday after a full day of weeding!
I did just cut a whole bowl of lettuce for dinner, taste testing as I picked it. It doesn't seem too bitter given the hot temps we have had. I did throw out the radishes though, they were super bitter!
In the meantime, I am super excited to say our Elephant Ear Bulbs have officially survived the winter! We stored them in a portion of our garage that stays around 50 degrees in a brown paper bag. We saw little sprouts come up a week or so ago, but the leaves have now unfurled and we officially have little plants! They were planted mid to late May, so it took just over a month. I think/hope now that they have leaves they will grow quickly. Aren't they fun?
Also, here is my Zinnia. So pretty!
