  1. Aaaah, those mice… It was fine until I had to deploy the bottom shelf of the array. I’m afraid some of those charismatic Good King Henry seeds have been eaten. No casualties on top, yet. Have to set some traps, I’m afraid.

  2. I’m growing butrnteut squash and can’t wait to pick them. The great thing is the squash last a long time even after you pick them. might pick up a blue hubbard squash at a local farm soon.
