Nothing To Report

Just another drizzly, cool day. 

I transplanted out the second planting of spinach and lettuce and got soaked in the process.  Oh well, if I didn't garden in the rain I wouldn't be gardening at all!

Is anyone's nasturtiums growing this year?  Mine all look about the same as they did when they were transplanted outside. The only ones that are doing any good at all are the ones that are planted in my kitchen window box.  They are in the shade most of the day but they must be getting some heat from the house.
