Now that is out of the way, here are my latest attempts:
- Transplanted Bonnie Winterbor Kale starts from Lowe's, right next to the chicken coop.
- Transplanted Bonnie Greek Oregano into the garden box by the parsley from spring 2013, that the swallowtail caterpillars tried to strip this past fall.
- Scattered more rainbow carrot seeds from an unopened packet of Ferry-Morse rainbow mix ... as I emptied it, I noticed on the back it said "Sell by 12/13." Oops. I'll see if anything comes up.
Now for a few pics.

(plus weeds and the newest compost bed/pea patch-to-be)
I do have some more mustard plants, but the three or four in the box pictured are downright impressive, and I am hoping to get seeds from them. There are just about enough pea pods on the sugar peas for a nice skillet-full of stir fry. The spinach transplants are still alive, but not doing anything impressive there. I may resort to a bit of chemical fertilizer so we can have a few salads.
Oh, of course I have three or four yellow pear cherry tomato plants going great gangbusters ... this is all from that one plant I got the spring of 2013, and they just keep coming back. It is almost up to weed status, which is hilarious as I cannot keep mint alive, but my least favorite variety of tomato constantly reseeds itself.
