|The leaves of yellow beans have a yellow hue, fear not, they are well.|

Within a week of sowing beet and turnip seed, we had a gully washer. No other way to say it, the beets took a beating and the turnips floated away-yay-yay. Mustard took a hit when Buffy-The-Vampire-Slayer took a walk through. Today I replanted.Whoever wrote Butternut Squash are impervious to squash borers, lied. They. do. too. I pulled them out in disgust and sowed spinach. Spinach is a crapshoot. Maybe we'll get lucky again. Lettuce goes in next. Happy, happy, joy, joy! We love lettuce, all kinds. Broccoli and cabbage seedlings are healthy. They'll get transplanted soon. Yellow french beans, can't call them green beans, are flowering. Scott's mom always grew the yellow variety so we do it too. Soon, very soon, we'll have beans on our dinner plates again. I love them-easy to grow, easy to pick, easy to prep, easy to cook. Pick them up and eat them with your fingers like french fries, folks, and they become the ultimate fun food. C'est bon.
