Its been a challenging start to the year for my gardens. Peppers and Cucumbers are growing slowly and look rather unhappy. I haven’t given up hope. There are some bright spots however. The Kalettes are looking great and the rat tailed radish is still producing at an alarming rate, people are getting tired of being asked if they’d like some. In the coming weeks I hope to see my Jerusalem artichokes shoot up a couple more feet and my Cucumbers and beans start to climb their substantial stems.
