The Sweetie Baby romaine lettuce...
|June 24 (after harvesting 3 heads)|
Broccoli and kale...
I do believe that the veggies like their new beds. Of course, it has helped that the days are long and we've had mostly very mild weather, not too hot, other than a few days in the mid 80F's and not too cold, mostly in the high 60F's to mid 70F's. Nighttime temps still dip down into the high 40F's but the vegetables don't seem to mind that and the tomatoes are protected by their mini greenhouse so they are happy and even starting to set some fruits. I'm planning on removing the plastic cover from the cages around July 1, but in the meantime I need to get in there to start pushing the stems inside the cages.
Here's a few more shots of the rest of the vegetables.

|Gigante bean flowers|
|Neckarkönigin green beans|
|Da Fiore zucchini|
|Tasty Green and Green Fingers cucumbers|
The new bed has been almost filled with eggplant and peppers and a bit of basil.
And now I must finish clearing out the final old bed to make way for the new.
