RE: Anyone gardening this weekend?

I had to look up Okinawa spinach. Sounds interesting. Do you eat it raw
like they're suggesting, as a salad vegetable, or just cook it?
Nothing edible here although I might manage a couple green tomatoes if I
am lucky and maybe a few basil leaves. I have peach pulp and grape juice
in the freezer if I feel like making jam or jelly but I suspect that is
not going to happen for some months.

Not sure here. Somewhat depends on the weather, which is 50-50 chance
of rain. Just loaded up the drier with peppers and there are more that
need to go in. There's probably a pound or two of Okinawa spinach that
I should pick and freeze. Meyer lemons are beginning to ripen as are
the key limes, so I need to consider getting the juicer out and into
operation. I just picked an atemoya, and it's ready to eat, so I need
to check the tree for more of them. The black sapote should also have
ready-to-pick fruit this time of year, so I'll have to check it. But
all those things won't take more than a few hours, four at the most.
