Garden notes

• Have eaten several pods' worth of tiny peas raw, while standing in the garden.

• Tomatoes not doing as well as I would like due to aridity and transplant shock. I think most of them will do fine eventually, though. Any that don't will be evicted and their locations direct-seeded.

• Have lost 1 celeriac, but the others seem to be adapting.

• Tiny green and wax beans forming in greenhouse.

• Salsify a little overdue for transplanting. Ditto eggplants.

• Squash germination count: 6 zucchini, 3 scallop, 1 Charentais melon.
