Today's post is brought to you by the number five. That's how many degrees below and inches of rain above normal it was for the month of March. April is looking to be slightly less ornery, but let's not get our hopes up.

One thing that has been growing incredibly fast lately is the kale in the garden. This couldn't have been a better winter for cole crops - cool, rainy, and mild.
Some radishes, on the left, are off to a great start and should be ready to eat in a couple weeks. The peas, on the other hand, are not. Only two peas emerged from the soil. I dug through to see what the problem was, and they were all gone! Something's eating them...no clue what though.
