Yule planting

I found fresh turmeric and ginger at the Company Shops Market, last week.  I dropped them both in some water to keep them fresh until I could get them planted.  Yesterday, Chuck picked up a pot and some dirt for it.  Today, I put the ginger in the new, fancy, terra cotta pot and the turmeric in the old, plain, terra cotta pot.  If everything goes according to plan, they should be ready to begin  harvesting on or around September 15.

While he was shopping for me, he got some compost to top dress our raised beds and planted lettuce and arugula in the fallow bed.  We think the excessive rain is the cause of our salad bed wasting away to nothing.  Last year’s lettuce crop was so extravagant, needing to replant is something of a shock.
