The chufa I planted never came up. Either that, or I accidentally weeded it out! It does look like grass...a fact I forgot for awhile, but I would be surprised if I weeded it as I was keeping a look-out for anything growing in rows the way I planted them. Oh well, maybe I'll have better luck next year with the ground nut experiment.
This is the bed that used to have the lettuce in it. The extra cosmos flowers I filled in with are thriving. Behind that is some purple, thai, lemon, cinnamon and genovese basil plants that have finally started to grow. They were leftovers from the farm that I did not get to plant out right away, so the stress got to them. Same with the big bushy cherry tomatoes you see here. They are just starting to produce. Better late than never - Sungold cherry tomatoes are just about everybody's favorite!
The brussel sprout bed is full. Not so full of sprouts though - two of the plants have no sprouts for some reason. I should pull the plants out since they are just using nutrients for nothing. If I didn't have a million awesome vegetables from the farm's CSA box every week, I would totally use the brussel sprout leaves. But since I have kale - I'd rather use that!
