New farmers have arrived! WPFF is officially an Agricultural Conglomerate!
FarmaNatrix Cathy is growing corn among other things, the little minx. A woman after my own heart -- I think she's using InstaPlants. Yay, FarmaNatrix Cathy!
I'm trying to grow pole beans. Note the operative word trying. Seeds went into the ground a couple of weeks ago (along with some heirloom lemon cucumbers). According to both seed packets, I should be seeing sprouts by now, but nope.
Could it possibly have something to do that we've gone from sunny, marginally balmy days in the low 70s to daily monsoon rains and hand-numbing temperatures hoving in high 40s and to mid 50s? Let's just say, we've had to re-start the furnace at the Nine-One-Four.
And I know precisely why the change in weather . . . I bought a pair of summer sandals in Portland.
I've only worn them once since we got back to Bermtopia.
the little stinkers are doing better than last year's.)
But about those beans and cukes. . . I'm giving them till the weekend to straighten up, fly right and make an appearance. According to the owners' manual, they've had plenty of time to germinate and sprout. I'll show them!
I'll simply replant.
