Friday was a beautiful day. Saturday was supposed to start raining at 11, but kindly held off until 5 or so. Saturday night and Sunday brought 2.5 inches of rain--a record. Now there's flooding along the Grande Ronde River, but we are luckily high and dry. The plants held up remarkably well in the rain.
We got all of the potatoes planted. We also got a few more onions in, radishes, cilantro, beans, and carrots. I think we're ahead of our usual pace. Even the corn was planted! I'm sure they're all thrilled it was 34 degrees last night.
|The kitchen was briefly taken over by potatoes as they formed a coating on their cut edge.|
|The volunteer cilantro are doing better than those which I started.|
We spent a fair amount of time putting in irrigation, but ran out of drip tape part-way through the garlic. Then of course the rain came, so the need abated.
Shawn say evidence of cut worms, so the diatomaceous earth came out.

The young owls are growing and seemingly getting used to me walking under them.
|The leeks look great!|
|More new zucchini.|
|Onions perked up.|
