My Beets, So Far, and the Potager
Burpee's Golden Beets
In addition to the family garden, I have every spare inch in my own yard planted with fruits and berries and salad fixings. My one big space splurge is the short row of potatoes, they need some space.

Edamame, finally coming up. Edible soybeans are a lot slower to germinate than I would think.
Makeshift fencing around four blueberry bushes in the potager, 'Yukon Gold' potatoes, carrots 'Little Fingers' and leaf lettuce
Soil to right has been replanted with some rutabagas and a second planting of radishes.
