Trying to grow things in multiple places is still driving me crazy, but it was nice this week to see the first beans and squash poke their seed leaves above the ground at the new farm. I was also happy to see that the soil at the new place lets in water much better than I’m used to around here with the more typical Kentucky clay soils. I went there in middle of the heaviest rain yesterday to see how things were faring, and was worried about what it meant that my beans were in two or three inches of standing water. But, after 6 inches of rain yesterday, today all the water had soaked in and the soil wasn’t even muddy. That will be a very nice change from what I’m used to!

I haven’t harvested them yet, but I expect there to be a few new items for market this week — fennel, cousa, zucchini, and peppers — but I also expect quantities to be quite limited on all of them. — Sydney
