Updated garden pics!

Left to right - garlic and fall beets, lettuce and onions (started from seed), lettuce and garlic, onions from sets. Chard and a mini watermelon in the front

Closeup of my onions from seed - they're doing way better than the sets.

Soon I will have tomatoes! Mmmm!

Some of today's haul - those turnips are pretty darned big.

A comparison, from the back of the plot. The day I planted the tomatoes and seeded a bunch, vs today.

Becky and the cats: Jitzu (11), Torri (9), Doran (8 ), and Muffin (8 )
The boys at 8 - not lol

Looking great!! I'm jealous of your tomatoes ;p Mine are coming along... very slowly.

Here's a little beefsteak:

And an itty, bitty roma:

The herbs are kicking butt, as usual. From left to right: sage, Greek oregano, lemon balm. They all smell amazing.

Got a little harvest going, need to grab some paper bags and move them to a closet:

Didn't prune them right down, so I still have some for fresh usage. Thinking some iced green lemon balm tea

L.C., Billie, your gardens look great! I guess the growing's good in Canada!

Mini watermelons? That sounds like a great idea! So, they're more portable... do they taste like regular W.M.s?

My garden has been put to bed for the winter. Except for parsley. I let that go until it freezes. Yesterday I found 3 Black Swallotail Butterfly caterpilars on the parsley. I hope they all make it.
