Death comes to us all

We’ve had our first tragedy, a casualty among the cucumber community. One seedling in the nursery has died, both unexpectedly and inexplicably.  One day it was alive and vibrant, the next it was withered and lifeless. Such is the punishing cruelty of life.  
With snow falling this morning, I expect more disappointment awaits us at our afternoon plot visit. Let us hope the lettuce has hope.


  1. I took the trash out this morning and there was snow covering a pink violet and I immediately thought of your plot--I hope it's OK!!! Plants are tough--I bet/hope you will be surprised.
