Here are the few things we have planted so far and how they've done in this never-ending rain. The one picture I didn't get was the eggplant bed. They aren't doing so well. Haven't grown much and the leaves are yellowing. Turns out that's a sign of over watering. That is certainly nothing I had any control over but maybe now with a week of dry weather, they'll perk up. The soil in all the beds is nice and moist so no worry this week.
|Tomatoes in raised bed|
The tomatoes are growing like crazy!! I am afraid the jalapeño in the middle might get overshadowed but not much I can do about that now, except pick up an already growing one and transplant into another bed.
They are covered in blooms!

And look here!
An actual tomato!
I'm kind of embarrassed about this. I pulled up a few of them as I was "weeding" the raised bed...I forgot they were the carrot seeds I threw in just to see what would happen. OOPS!
|Herb raised bed|
Above is the herb bed....this was before trimming. They were growing well and so I took the opportunity to harvest a few...
|Herbs in basket|
...and end up with this, our first "harvest" this season, ha. Lots of regular basil, a nice bunch of purple basil, a few chives and some lemon thyme and oregano. 2nd Man made a wonderful roasted chicken with some fresh herbs (my camera battery was dead, boo!). Still have a bunch in the fridge.
We'll see what happens by the weekend!
