Pasta Salad, Niçoise Style, sunflowers – or not — 3 Comments

  1. My guess is that the disturbed soil from the pond had few worms, microbes, etc in it to aid growth. Maybe by next year the soil will have replenished itself with these life givers.

  2. the tops will only grow as far as the roots so maybe the soil in both cases was too compact? or as Zoomie said not enough nutrients and worms and microbes. salad looks yummy

  3. Zoomie, my guess is that you’re right…. Which makes me surprised he didn’t plant rye to just plow under.

    Gayle, the farm field is heavy clay so that could be part of it. I find it all most curious.
