South side of Bed 2

Bed 2 -- Front (S side) as of 25 July 2011

This is the appearance of the front of Bed 2, as of 25 July 2011.  I planted cosmos in the very front, one is already flowering. Then, there’s chard–a bit stunted, for some reason. Next, I planted “Blue Lake” bush string beans in the middle–these are fantastic! I blanch them for salads.  In the front of the picutre are a couple of zucchini in gopher baskets–necessary! My husband managed to successfully trap a gopher in this bed–no small feat!  The yellowing plant is a celery I let go to seed, in order to save its seeds.
