As much as I'd been hoping for warm weather, I don't think I quite internalized that it would mean that from now on any time spent not working in the garden is guilt ridden. And that I'd need to start thinking about sunburns and carrying water with me.
I also discovered that the flea beetles have infested the arugula and radishes. I covered them up, but don't think it'll help. I suppose I should do some research on what actually would help rather than wringing my hands helplessly.
Shawn also planted carrots, lettuce, and cilantro. I got another bunch of radishes in the ground. The peas seem to be getting ahead of the quail, but they've started taking dust baths in the newly germinated radishes. The chard is also up. They are at least partially covered now.
We all worked on the endless weeding. The straw purchased from D&B was a big mistake--full of wheat and other grass seeds. The other straw mulch is actually keeping the weeds down. At least the buttonweed is rewarding to kill at the moment--most are big and have giant tap roots that are easily broken through with a shovel. Maximum reward for minimum effort. Unlike the grass, which is the opposite.
