The rain is still coming down. The ground is fully saturated so the water just sits there, getting deeper. In a strange way I am grateful for clay soil. If I had planted directly into the ground, rather than used raised beds, all my vegetables, berries, etc. would be waterlogged.
The lettuce has been doing well though. It's pretty!
|I like the pretty spotted lettuce!|
I don't know what sort of lettuces these are. They were in a "garden mix" that I am not impressed with. My best lettuce has grown from seeds from Walgreen's, when they put seeds on sale for 10 cents or so!
What is a bit ragged for us to eat doesn't go to waste. We have a Guinea pig and three rats who enjoy fresh produce!
