The wrong things thrive

So many brave little vegetable plots in people's yards; so many lush, tall weeds, and stunted, blasted seedlings. Strange that this confusing and unpleasant weather has little effect on the junky plants. The people who have tall pea plants and spinach that doesn't look as if it's been hit by a blowtorch rolled the dice and planted a few months ago, when the soil was still cold and wet from winter.
Long walk, for errands and exercise; the day held steady, the umbrella was just extra weight in my backpack.
