Garden update

Most of the sprouts now either have their second set of leaves or are about to get them, and the peppermint seeds are finally coming up!  The cucumber seeds haven’t arrived yet, nor have the seed potatoes.  I’m going to call the potato company tomorrow and find out what’s up; planting date is in just a couple of weeks.  I have received the packet of salsify (Mammoth Sandwich Island!  Best plant name ever!), with a freebie packet of yellow pattypan squash seeds along with it.  I’ll plant the squash and see if they grow; I really really like pattypans.  Salsify is apparently very easy to grow, and is going to be difficult to find anywhere else.  They have pretty flowers, so I’ll let a few stay in the ground to flower and set seed next year.
