It was a cloudy day. None of the seeds we planted last Wednesday have come up, but that would have been a miracle. They need more time. It's supposed to rain tonight. I planted kale and arugula in Garden #1 where the Roma tomatoes used to be. Trying to plant different vegetables in order to regenerate and amend the soil.

Reading and researching Root-knot nematodes, of which I had many this year. All the tomato plants, save one, and many of the other vegetables, had these bulbous protuberances. Not good. It's hard to get rid of them, but French Marigolds help. Must plant the marigolds among the tomatoes next year. Also, pull out all the infected roots and turn the soil, in order to expose any remaining roots to the cold weather, so they will die.
