This is how we dooz it.
Carrots (hard to see) and weeds.
Tomatoes — the red is an early bloomer “magenta” variety.
Peas are flowering and climbing!
It’s been about 50 days and like clockwork, the greens have filled in the raised bed. Arugula is such a quick crop that it is already beginning to bolt. Time to eat them up to make room for the tomatoes, beans, peppers and things to go in the bed next. The carrots are such an experiment this year. I eat carrots just about everyday and would love if they actually grow with my limited sunlight. I’ll report back soon!
