    Looks like my garden survived 3 days and nights of rain and thunder storms. I'm happy about the spinach this year. Its the first year I've had full rows from direct sow. I think it needs to be cold (like snow on the ground) to germinate well. As soon as it dries out, I need to thin, pull weeds, fertilize and lay down straw. But its a mud hole right now.

    Rainy evening, I need to thin, weed, fertilize and mulch but its way to wet in there.

    Left to right, kale, romaine, 2 rows each beets & spinach.
    IMG_20190424_192135758.jpg

    2 rows each Brussels, cauliflower, cabbages, broccoli.
    IMG_20190424_192200350.jpg

    2 rows onions & carrots. Last row of carrots drown, its the lowest part of the garden, so lots of skips. I might just till that row under.

    Cauliflower is a bust - button heads :( its been a decade or more since I had button heads, when I was learning how to grow cauliflower. There is no reason why these plants should have buttoned. i planted early enough and it hasn't turned hot yet. What a disappointment.
