How does your garden grow?

View of garden looking toward houseIt's been less than two months since my first garden planting—peas that never sprouted—and things are looking pretty good.

In the raised bed at right everything is thriving except the cilantro and onions. But the beets, kohlrabi, dill, parsley, fennel and basil are doing great.

In the ground the tomatoes and zucchini are doing well, while some peppers look good and others are being chewed up by some insect or critter.

In the straw bales everything looks a bit anemic compared to similar plants in other spots. Maybe I should have put more soil in? I've got some organic fertilizer that I'll sprinkle around the plants tomorrow.
