I braved the mud and took a peak at the gooseberries and currants today. And I’m glad I did because I got to snap pictures of the currants’ adorable little flowers.

Personally, it brings to mind some of the dresses in the 1997 (“Brandy’s) Cinderella.

(If you don’t know what dresses I’m talking about, you’re going to have to google it. I’m not risking Disney’s wrath by sharing a picture. But both the Step Mother and Step Sister Calliope wear the dress style).

And just like any good wannabe princess with bad taste and on a budget, you want to have a moat.

Water is, apparently, optional in the moat though

With the day after day after day of rain this past week, we are super grateful to be able to grow in the tunnels.

Yet despite having a nice heated, covered tunnel to grow in, the scallions in the hydro-house decided that all that rain was just too much, and they just need a break from growing up.

A quick little lie-down is all.

Pretty frustrating actually. We’ve coaxed, we’ve explained, we’ve discussed, we’ve physically moved, and yet these scallions persist in lying down on the job.

What makes it worse is they are right next to the baby scallions, teaching them bad habits!
