|Grey Seeded Simpson lettuce.|
|Giant bed of Simpson lettuce.|
|The Swiss chard is getting gigantic.|
|The bitter melon was mowed down and has grown back. The fruit is unlikely to mature before winter.|
The summer drought has finally ended and the weekly rainfall has wrought an unusual sight. Lettuce starts abound cutting a chartreuse swath through the lawn, little bush bean plants, tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers are starting over again. They are terribly cute, but it is unlikely they will bare fruit even when frost comes late in our area. I have a terrible urge to plant a patch of winter radishes, since they are so juicy and mild when grown in the fall months.
