Twitter...

I've started a Twitter feed (on the right). It seems like a good, low-expectation, easy way to post updates on the garden. The formatting is a bit ugly and hard to read, but if you tweet, you can always subscribe directly to my Twitter feed... I already appreciate the ability to quickly check when/what was planted, when things sprout, etc. Sometimes that information seems too unimportant to post on the blog, but just right for a quick tweet.

I like the twitter. Keep it going. Wondering on the peas... why so much compost as they are supposed to improve soil? My peas did ok but the freeze made them cut out early. I've also had trouble with rattlesnake beans sprouting- the first round out of the package did great... after that maybe 1 out of 5 and down from there. And a very pretty garden princess. :->

the mulch is there mostly to keep the roots cool and moist, which is (apparently) how they like it.

my bet is that your beans rotted b/c it was just too cold for them to germinate well. i replanted my rattlesnakes march 11 and they are already up and happy on march 14.
