I like to grade our gardening efforts using the traditional US report card metric. This year's spring cool season grade is a B.



Successes:

- Arugula - made these into reseeding 'practically perennials' using tarp method
- Green Arrow Dwarf English shelling peas
- Sugar Snap Tall peas
- New Kuroda carrots
- Early Green Acre cabbage
- Bronze Looseleaf and Jericho romaine lettuce
- Premier kale

Struggles/failures:

- Tall Top Early Wonder beets
- Keuka gold and banana fingerling potatoes
- Black-eyed peas

Is the B justified? Higher? Lower? How does your garden rate?
