It's A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

It was unexpectedly nice to day...the forecast was for rain!  Tomorrow is supposed to be pretty nice too.  It was just like medicine to sit in the sun pulling weeds today.  Much better than having frozen fingers and rain dripping off the end of your nose all day!  

Business was good.  I sold some broccoli today!  Just a small head.  I see a few radishes that are ready to pick too. 

Since the evening was so mild Mr. Adams and I took Lucy for a walk.  She has such a boring life...I feel guilty all the time for ignoring her so much....but the garden demands almost all of my time.  (and you should see the laundry that is piling up!)

I am half way done weeding the carrot bed.  The weeds are the worst I've ever seen them...I guess they like rain!
