It seems GC is much better at distinguishing subtle hues than I am: he scored 11 and I scored 53 on the Munsell Hue Test yesterday. (Zero is a perfect score.) I’m sure his giftedness in this area is due to the fact that his father is an ophthalmologist, whereas my father is just a professional bridge player. Of course I concluded that the Munsell Hue Test is kind of dumb and a bit tedious, but GC thinks it is brilliant and tons of fun. We’ll let you be the judge.
Last night we finally planted our vegetable garden over at the Carlington Community Gardens. We planted both seedlings and seeds and I’m just a wee bit concerned we might have jammed too much stuff into too small a space. I mean, everything’s nice and roomy now, but maybe in a few months it’ll be overcrowded.
The plot is 10 feet by 12 feet. We planted chives (1), asparagus (2), beans (7), peas (5), zucchini (just 1, like Grace said), cilantro (5), eggplant (1), raspberries (3), onions (about 36), swiss chard (about 15), strawberries (2), lettuce (6), cucumbers (1), tomatoes (2), carrots (um…about 40), peppers (3). We left room for radishes, potatoes and basil.
Whadya think? Will it work? (We’re clearly novices at gardening, and all our neighbours at the community garden seem to have figured this out. They seem amused by us though, and like to watch us and chuckle and offer us gems of wisdom and practical tips.)
