It must finally be getting around to summer. Last week I pulled the drip tape back out and irrigated for the first time this year.
Also in the past week, all of a sudden lambsquarter (an entirely edible weed when it’s small) is sprouting everywhere!
Stinging nettle sprouts when spring is just starting, lambsquarter jumps up when spring is in full swing, and then pigweed starts rocketing toward amazing heights when there is absolutely and certainly no chance whatsoever of another frost. So far I haven’t seen any pigweed, (which is a good excuse for why I haven’t transplanted tomatoes yet), but I’m sure it’s coming!
