garden diary- two week growth

It seems a lot can happen in two weeks of late May and early June sunshine. Thankfully the Humboldt Fog has held off early this year and although it was a long and wet winter for us here on the north coast it seems the tides have finally turned.  One lesson learned this year is not to neglect the quality of your soil. HEALTHY freshly composted soil needs to be added to your crop cycle each planting. I should have known this but cutting back on the budget this year I only refreshed one box instead of both. The quality is remarkable. I did apply a side dressing to the old soil but much more is needed. Oop! won't cut that corner again. For now I will just marvel at the "good" soil growth as pictured.
