Some weird ass fungus growing around the base of one of my lavender plants. I poked at them with a stick.

How to grow beets blog post

I just came across this great post, "How to Grow Beets," at A Way to Garden. I knew some of it (the structure of a beet "seed") but most of it was new to me, like how to store them. Plus there is a good recipe they link to there that I am hoping Adam will make for me when we have some.

A late start

So, this weekend we transplanted the peat pots into the ground, did some sowing of the other stuff, set up some irrigation with soaker hoses and timers, also cut up some dead sod that had burned out when the maple tree came down and sowed new grass. A busy weekend.
