Bolted!

This photo is evidence of ambition over available time. My radishes and salad greens have already bolted. I only got one round of salad out of them-- enough to feed four people. Really though I should have been able to do that another two times this past season. C'est la vie. Just not enough hours in the day for me to keep on top of that.

I'll be yanking all this out in the next few days and planting my pumpkins and watermelon in that raised bed. At least, my benign neglect of those will be more helpful in getting a good crop.

I bought a friend a packet of corn salad seeds because I thought it sounded funny. I'm not sure what happened, but it doesn't look anything like the picture. It looks more like a patch of clover, and there's not much of it. But if a sneaky guest positions her chair just right, she can sit and discreetly pluck the yummy little leaves off to nibble. I'm not saying who. I'm just kind of hoping that there's never enough for a real salad, and I, or whoever, can just have a little fresh snack all summer.
