But the greens are groovin' on this weather! My lettuce is growing strong and crisp. It's tender and tasty and really beats store bought. The arugula, oregano, parsley and rosemary are also loving the cool, cloudy, wet weather. So, I am making lemons from lemonade - or rather - I'm eating plenty of salad, and throwing in handfuls of fresh herbs.
Of course, some veggies are not happy about the lack of sun. The cucumbers plants, grown from seed are still puny, the eggplants, recently purchased as seedlings from the green market, have yet to take off, and the strawberries are not ripening. For their sake, I can only hope the sun will come out tomorrow...though the forecast calls for rain...
