We put away the last of the blended soil today, and had just enough for the large boxes. The smaller boxes, like the one with the winter cabbages, will have to wait until I get in soil for the potato barrels, which I'm going to have to do.
I discovered French sorrel growing under its on volition in the hoop-de-don't today. It was generating from roots that I'd inadvertently left in the bed. I dug them out as best I could, and plucked the one growing in the compost pile as well. I have a feeling that I'm going to be very sorry about growing French sorrel. It made nice soup but it wasn't all that good.
However, it did survive the heat of summer, even when I didn't water it, so maybe someday it'll be the weed that saves us.
