Inna Gadda De University Houses

I've been verbose in my last several posts so I'll let the pictures do the talking:

Plants (onions and carrots) + lots of weeds

More plants (spinach, red leaf and butter crunch lettuce), more weeds.

Two new pepper plants (one sweet, one hot)

Plants (spinach, lettuces, onions) with no weeds (if that were possible, ha!)

Butternut squash

Baby broccoli still tiny

Sweet potato (in the ICU, probably headed for the morgue soon)

New tomato and pepper plants

Leaves between all the rows (natural weed inhibitor)

Close up.

Even though "inmates running the asylum" was an accurate cliche to describe weeds and our garden when we came back from vacation, it's starting to look respectable again.  We already cut two small heads of the red leaf lettuce for dinner Thursday night.
