Daphne asked "How Does Your Garden Grow?"
My garden is growing, somethings are doing better than others, but this is nothing unusual.
Today, I did get a lot of planting done. All of my cabbage, the rest of the Swiss chard and my carrots were sown.
The front section was planted today. From left to right, two rows of cabbage interplanted with mixed lettuce, shallots, empty row, Swiss chard and the carrots are seeded to the right of the rose. The spinach patch is the left rear area.

The spinach patch.
|Notice that the growth is very uneven, I am attributing this to the use of open pollinated varieties.|

The rear bed from left to right, spinach patch, an enormous volunteer 'Bronze Beauty' lettuce, mixed Thai greens with snow peas behind, radish and arugula.

The last bed is to the back bed. It was planted with peas, but only the row by the fence germinated. The front portion now has lettuce, radish and beets as well as an over wintered parsley.
This is how my Potager grows.
Tomorrow I'll show how the pool bed is progressing.
