"So when are we going to do the dishes?"
This from a child who doesn't like to empty the dishwasher even when paid to do so...hmmm. Shoulda decomissioned the thing a long time ago.
Rain last night, grey and drizzly this morning....good for the soil and makes it easier to dig. since we got a late start this year, we're going to plant directly on a lot of things. We've noticed in years past that the volunteer tomatoes actually do better than the greenhouse starts by the end of the year. They come up slower, but the plants are more vigorous, and they seem to produce just about as much. So this year we'll try direct planting since we've had so much else going on.
