THERE WAS NO green to be seen at all after I played DIVOT, nor any yellow. I reloaded the grid with PLANE and got a yellow L and A. Placing them seemed more urgent than any other intermediate solving goal, so I chanced a repeated letter with RURAL. Still the wrong place for the A and the L, and no new gains. I moved them back to the middle front and tried another repeating letter with BALSA: green everywhere but the B. An S instead. Almost challenging but somehow bland.
