You take what you can get

Dead plants, stunted plants, slow-growing plants, some plants (good ones). I've accepted the fact that this year's harvest will be a meager one. Spring started off well enough, but the constant fluctuation between wet, cool days and scorching sunny ones from May to June was of no help in getting the garden off to a solid start. But I was clever this time, because I did tuck some vegetable starts in pots on the terrace. They won't yield as much, but I'll take what I can get.

Cucumbers and bell peppers

French breakfast radishes growing in the grape pot

Wasabi rucola (roquette). They really do taste like wasabi paste!

Todays high: 28°C / 82°F


  1. I have also accepted that my dahlia will probably not produce any flowers :( your radishes and that rucola look great!

    1. They're kinda like insurance that I won't go totally empty-handed each season ^-^, but I hope next year will be better.
