It finally cooled down enough to plant a proper garden. I've been on the fence about planting food, because (1) after it rains there is a thin black layer on everything, and (2) I don't trust the soil at the garden shop. There could really be anything in it. But I'm tired of not having a garden. And Chase has been really keen to try to plant different seeds from our fruits - watermelon, mango, avocado. We also planted peppers, carrots, chives, cauliflower, cabbage, cucumber, nasturtiums, and cosmos.
