I have spent the day outside weeding all the beds. Sad to find that the faint greenery I saw from a distance was never all Carrot and Beet seedlings- it was mostly weeds in those plots. When I took all the unwanted plants out, I only have a dozen carrots and even fewer beets left. Either they didn't germinate well or something ate them. I know the carrots got munched on- I found a bunch of naked stems. Put out beer traps but I didn't catch a single slug (good, now I know the coffee grounds are working to keep them at bay) but instead a lot of tiny earwigs. I didn't know earwigs ate veggies!
