#100HappyDays :: Day 44
We do not often get much of a spring. Many times we go straight from winter to the mud of the thaw, and then onto balmy summer temperatures. This year however, we seem to be stuck in perpetual Spring, as we head into the solstice this weekend, we have seen persistent rain, and many days of cool temperatures peppered with a few warm days here and there.
As a result the garden's summer veggies are off to a slower start. Thriving, and even some beginning to flower, yet still small plants aching for warm and sunny weather to grow. On the flip side of this is the cooler early summer crops of lettuces, cabbages and broccoli are growing beautifully and beginning to grace our nightly table.
