Monday Miscellany

I was intending to do a mega-post about either the garlic or the shallots today, but I guess that’s going to be put off until another day. I have three smaller items of some interest that I wanted to share before moving on to other things later this week.

First, hail damage:

This poor, shredded pepper plant is about the worst of the damage in the Demo Garden. I consider us very lucky with regards to storm damage.

I’ve been reading Annie’s Kitchen Garden blog for a couple of months now, and I’m always inspired by the gardening efforts this gal! Today she has a post about a variety of things, but what I just had to share was the part where she dried her lettuce harvest in a pillowcase and then used the damp pillowcase to store her lettuce in the refrigerator for the week. I know I just gave most of it away, but do go see the pictures. I’m going to have to try that method next time I have a lot of lettuce or spinach to wash.

And, for what it’s worth, a website has listed this little blog as “#47 in the Top 100 Gardening Blogs to Follow in 2013″…  There are a lot of gardening blogs that are not listed here, so I’m not going to let it go to my head! Speaking of gardening blogs, I’m always interested in finding new ones to follow. Do you have any good suggestions?
