The Grim March of the Vegetable

Today I ordered seeds. It’s a sort of masochistic experience, because I am very bad at vegetables, but I do it anyway.

This year’s experiments are Malabar climbing spinach (it tastes like spinach, it likes wicked heat and humidity, it functions as a salad green in midsummer) daikon radishes, Bull’s Blood beets, and a miniature bell-pepper. I am also going to try a short-day onion, direct seeded into the ground this fall, if the seeds actually arrive in time. (We’ll see how that goes…) Parisian heirloom pickling cucumbers and Wando garden peas will also get another run at the garden.

May the gardening gods have mercy on us all…
