A rather quiet week. The weather this week was a bit more cooperative than the previous few (I also noticed back-to-back days of no clouds made by man.)
Overall, it was a quiet week of progress, but progress nonetheless. I’ll take it.
Be well, everyone.

On Wednesday, I decided to head over and water the plants given the good sunshine and no rain predicted for Friday. I was greeted with a great surprise: sprouts. There had been enough direct sunshine to make the greens, carrots and spinach sprout. A few beans and peas pushed out of the ground, too, so there’s that as well. And the tomato is slowly taking root.
On Saturday, I had the pleasure of meeting my next door neighbor, Natasha. She’s been there all four years. 103 has had one other occupant, back in 2015. Otherwise the soil has been undisturbed. The tall cereal growing in her box was rye.
She had pulled the rye and don’t recall everything that she planted. If I remember, I’ll get some pictures of the new crops.
Also, the tomato plant in neighboring 102 isn’t holding up for as much as I’m watering it. The pepper plant is thriving under lack of attention (as they usually do) though.
