crop failure - daikon radishes. just wanted to give you guys the heads up that if you are hankering for a daikon you want to look elsewhere this month. not sure what happened they looked great and then you pulled one and they held their shape until you bit into one and then they turned into kind of a liquod soap in your hand and mouth.....suffering - first planting of beets. yellowing - soybeans.
on the plus side most everything else looks good. predicting a banner year for cucumbers. they say you have to plant cucumbers on the exact day of the moon cycle (first quarter - cancer) or they wilt. this year we got that right - it rained the next day (of course) and they are looking really good. tomorow lots of greens. use soy sauce and a small sprinkle of sesame oil on cooked greens. over rice. must go asian with diet. seriously. lots of peas tomorrow. broccolli also starting. weird lettuce from sweden - dont know the name of it good with rice vinegar, lemon and sugar dressing. possible kohlrabi.
