garden goodness

we planted the baby melon transplants and the sweet potato slips today! we are trying something new: black plastic mulch for both. karl had the plastic already leftover from a work project, so it was free for us to try.

yesterday we planted another big long row of beets and i pulled spent arugula & lettuce to plant new basil, dill and cilantro.

everything is planted until fall. well, if i want fall cabbage i will start it in august or so. but until then, we are done! now the truly hard stuff is approaching- the daily weeding, tying, training and bug-fighting.

p.s. we have dined twice on new potatoes. yum.
