Rain

May 18, 2011

Nature seems to be making up for a week of sunshine with a week of rain. It has been falling pretty consistently and heavily for much of the last three days. For the most part, the plants seem to be reveling in the wet weather. There was a little bit of damage- a fallen tomato branch and some bruised bok choi leaves- but nothing serious. Monday and Tuesday were late (and rainy) nights so I didn’t go out and check on the plants, but I was quite impressed by their growth when I went out today. The peas are climbing so quickly that I’m worried their going to get too tall for the current trellis before I’ll have time to seek a solution this weekend.

Here’s a shot of the radish forest. We pulled one out today and it was just the right size. We’ll have to harvest the rest soon.

The herbs are coming along nicely too. Well most of them… A few weeks back I planted some more chives in a small ceramic pot. They sprouted early last week. Unfortunately when I went out today, the half inch tall sprouts were under a pool of water that had gathered at the top. I dumped the water off, but without proper drainage I’m not sure they’ll make it. Here are some pictures of the first batch of chives and thyme.

We harvested most of the bok choi today to use in a stir fry with eggplant, tofu, onion, and soba noodles. Stir fry is one of our go to weeknight meals- easy, quick, and delicious.
