June 14th, raised beds

Missed another two weeks...anyway, you can see that everything looks great. The giant squash turned out to be zucchini, with the delicata coming along nicely behind it (although you can't see it). I need to label everything when I plant it! As I type this, William is sauteing the first 2 zucchinis and 2 blossoms as well, for lunch. Hooray!
I've started various basil, cilantro, and parsley seeds in the pots that you can see in one of the photos. The cilantro is going to seed and I'll try to save some of it, although it's a quick-bolting variety. I harvested all the chard and arugula this week and we've used it in salads, along with the romaine lettuce from the CSA. The lettuce is doing well and the spinach is...not. All the herbs are fine and the tomatoes are flowering - I can't WAIT for the fresh tomatoes!
