I am feeling better about the loss of the cauliflower. After all, chances were I wouldn’t have gotten anything out of them anyway, it being spring. And other things are going well. The potatoes are springing up; the cucumbers are doing well; the tomatoes are at least not dying; the bachelor’s buttons are thriving in their chosen spot; we cleaned up the front yard this evening; and I spotted this while doing some drive-by weeding.

The Italian Farmhouse beans are flowering. And they’re lovely.
