I re-sowed them all and still no luck. Eaten by birds maybe? I've seen a bunny or two running through the backyard at night, but have noticed little damage to the lettuces and other plants, which surprises me. Maybe they are too full of strawberries, of which I've had none, despite the gorgeous proliferation of plants. Too many plants by far, I realize now that where I thought I saw one plant there was actually three or four. I should have radically thinned them. Which may be the reason for no berries--or something is eating them all.
On the first semi-free day I've had all month, I'm making some garden notes for future years. I'll post a few here in lieu of a more literary offering--that will have to wait for the growth explosion to slow down a bit, for Hoopfest to be over, and for all of us to return home to a more normal (normal? is summer ever normal?) routine. I've got separate notes for vegis, fruit trees, and berries, all on Evernote for future reference. My climate is dry, with hot summers and cold winters. My soil is not good, a silty clay, though I've tried to amend it in many ways. Here is my veggie list so far. I will also post lists for the fruit. If I get ambitious I will add some pictures!:
