Vegetable (and fruit!) garden

Here is a photo of some of the seeds I will be planting in our vegetable garden this year. Zucchini, rainbow chard, mache, baby lettuce, red lettuce, baby carrots, jewel-toned beets, green beans, watermelon, and baby pumpkins. All this in addition to the tomatoes and bell peppers I have already started indoors. This year I am going to go much lighter on the zucchini; last year I only had four plants, but they just produce so much, so this year I'm cutting it down to two plants.

What happened to Spring? Temperatures have been in the mid-80s all week. It sucks because it seriously cuts down the number of hours in the day I'm able to go out and work in the yard.

I'm so jealous that you have time (and space) for this. I tried last year and got some tomatoes, zuchini, and cucumbers, but I simply don't have the time this year. Oh well. I really can't wait until I'm finished with my Master's degree, although that is still 2 years off at least.
