A week of rain pretty much pounded the garden into muddy oblivion. The beans were completely washed out and tomatoes and squash look like someone walked on them, but some of the early spring veggies did okay.

Of course, radishes are oblivious to weather, so those are no surprise, but one that is is this attractive little Romaine lettuce called “Freckles.”

Bright green leaves with little burgundy streaks and splotches. When they get bigger (or “if they get bigger” since I’m battling a hungry and elusive gopher) I’ll bet they look really interesting next to the mixed greens, radishes and onions in that vegetable garden bed.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
