A garden update, as requested: our cilantro grew magnificently but flowered early and was also plagued by aphids; it has now bit the dust. The pepper is doing very well. One of the tomatoes is doing okay and the other is looking fairly sad. We recently reshuffled things to get the tomatoes more light; hopefully this will improve their situation. Pictures below.
Hmm, D has been working hard assembling data charts into rectangular shapes; I don’t think she’d approve of the job I’ve done here. Luckily, this blog post is unlikely to ever be submitted for publication in a scientific journal.
