second box, right hand side:

garlic and shallots.  these guys are doing really well.  and i’ve been nibbling at their stems every now and then.  really good.

last box, left side:

potatoes and onions.  i read recently that marigolds planted near potatoes helps ward off bugs that are attracted to the leaves of the potato plant.  even if it doesn’t work, the color is still nice.

some of the oregano i got for free on freecycle.  i decided to pot it in order to contain it better.  oregano is known to be quick growing and invasive if given too much space.

all the seedlings left to transplant.  mostly tomatoes. and really – can you have too many tomatoes?
