Today I went out into the garden and removed the last of the spring lettuce from the raised bed. I raked the soil so that it was loose again as it had been this spring then filled the bed to the top with fresh potting soil. After mixing the two soils together I proceeded to plant seeds of Rouge d’Hiver lettuce. I watered them in and am patiently waiting for signs of life.
The Theobroma cacao tree puts out more flowers by the day. I noticed that one of them had finally opened slightly today.
