Ground cloth/weed blocker makes a good shade cloth for tender lettuces
Ping/bang/scrape, buzzz….ping/bang/scrape…buzz: it’s got to be summer, I can no longer deny it. The June bugs hit the screen of our bedroom window as I sit reading every night in the light of the nightstand lamp. June, already? Yes.

Yes, I am trying hard to take my own advice: it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Winter’s late stay, spring’s sodden unhappiness…these things do affect what comes out of the ground, including what should be going into it, and when.
