Garden Update

The kale, broccoli rab & chinese broccoli (basically like broccoli rab) are growing and may be ready to nibble early next week. Chard is going like crazy and getting TALL! I think I have to re-plant chard seeds. Cilantro, fennel, dill & parsley not growing as expected. Lettuces planted didn't grow well though two heads of romaine popped up 10 feet away (I think seeds got on kitty or raccoon paws - birds must've eaten rest of seeds).

The potato condo is doing very well. Lots of vines, no flowers yet - am going to add a few more sprouted potatoes to the condo.

Lots of tomato volunteers in the garden - 31 at last count though I spotted a few coming up amidst the kale.

My seedling tray is sad and pathetic.

I am going to just buy a TON more basil seeds and sow direct to soil because I'm tired of them not growing in the tray, and have to go buy some more tomatoes so I can have 50 or so again this year. *sigh*

Buying tomato plants. What is this world coming to?

My name is Bill Hawthorne, and I represent, a leading web resource for asbestos exposure and mesothelioma cancer information. Our organization is dedicated to increasing awareness of the terrible health consequences of asbestos exposure through the distribution of the best informational materials and public outreach efforts.

I found your site through a search and decided to contact you because of its high environmental and green presence which is extremely important in our movement. Your viewers are extremely savvy and motivated. The promotion of how buildings should now be built using green products to avoid asbestos and mesothelioma as well as the awareness of past buildings and preventative steps in avoiding asbestos exposure are extremely important. My goal is to get a resource link on your site/blog or even to provide a guest posting to be placed.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to check out our website at Thank you for your time and consideration.
