The rain has avoided us again. I’m resigned to settling into a second drought pattern, and I’m resolved to fare this one better than the last.
This year, I’ve copied the design of the water trough planter and made a wicking bed planter. It’s doing fairly well, although I believe it’s almost time to move it to a better location. I planted the kale, lettuce, radish and onion here. There was a pest attack, so I didn’t get much lettuce harvest. The kale has been a bit reserved in its growth, but I’ve added a few leaves to salads. The onion seeds were planted a month late, so I only expect to have green onions from them. We did enjoy several radishes in salads before I allowed them to go to seed. Next time, I’ll set that container right outside during the end of winter with a clear plastic cover.
