update on the last few weeks:

winter squash growing past blue corn and scarlet runner beans:

sunflower, also much bigger now:
purple top turnips:

garlic for market:beet and turnip greens:
root vegetables:
tomatoes are a lot bigger now, but we had to pull up the far left row today because they had some virus that spreads but has no cure. it was unfortunate but it had to be done. also these all have tee-pees now. i guess when everything is in full swing it is hard to photograph and blog everything.
