Ready for topsoil!
Two Brandywine tomatoes, two Sungold tomatoes, and some bunching onions
Sage and rosemary planted.
Lavender and dahlias
radishes, I think
lettuce starts from a neighbor
lettuce sprouts, I think
zinnias - State Fair Mix and Peppermint Stick
The first bean sprout! I'm growing the Early Bountiful bush beans.
I thinned out the radishes and brought them home to go in a salad. I also pulled an onion because I could!
The beans are doing well
Overview of the garden on 6/5/10
The garden on June 7 - the cucumbers are up now! I've also thinned the radishes, lettuce, and zinnias.
The lettuce seems to have recovered from the transplant
The nasturtiums are going for it!
The lettuce is starting to show true leaves now.
Beans! I thinned these after taking this photo. I forgot to take a photo after the thinning but will post one later. I transplanted the thinned ones into the carrot area in hopes they will survive.
The second section of beans. I'm planting the beans, carrots, and lettuce in stages to provide a longer harvest.
The lettuce seems happy. :)
Our next-door plot neighbor, Rain, gave me a sunflower seedling. I put it next to the tomatoes.
I love dahlias.
This is the tree next to my plot
The lavender sent up some flower stalks after being transplanted - I think it likes its new home.
This is Claudia's plot. She's on the other side of the tree from our plot.
This is half of Jonathan's plot. He's next to Claudia.
The zinnias have two sets of leaves now.
basil and bunching onions
more lettuce sprouting
the green beans seem to be doing well
the carrots are putting out their second set of leaves
The plot next to ours - it belongs to Rain
thinned the lettuce
I took the plastic off the tomatoes!
He is hard to see, but there is an Anna's Hummingbird in one of the higher branches. We've named him Soggy, as he hung around the garden all winter and sang in the rain.
Overview of the north end of the middle section of the plot The oldest beans are on the north end, the second oldest are south of that, and I've just planted a third section south of those. The beans over on the west side are transplants from the northernmost section - a couple more died after transplanting, but these three seem okay. There oldest carrots are in that section too, and I planted another section just south of that. Over on the northeast corner are the oldest lettuce, and the second section is just south of that.
One of the Sungold tomatoes, some onions on the left, nasturtiums in front, and basil is coming up on the right.
One of the first sections of lettuce.
The transplanted beans are doing surprisingly well. The carrots are also coming along nicely, if a bit slower than I realized.

The other of the two first sections of lettuce.
The little ones are oregano. I'm not sure whether the two bigger ones are weeds or friends, so I will wait a while and see.
One of the first sections of lettuce again.
One of the second sections of lettuce.
The lettuce starts given to me are almost ready for their first cutting!
The zinnias are growing quickly
damage to a cucumber seedling
damage to another cucumber
yet more cucumber damage
not sure why the sage leaves have these yellow spots on them
tomato leaf - not sure what is going on here, but at least it's only on this one leaf
different spots on a different tomato leaf
holes in a tomato leaf - grrrr, leave my leaves alone, pests!
holes in the lettuce leaves
the first bean plant to send up these middle leaves
The cucumbers are showing true leaves now. I hope they'll recover from and become more resistant to whatever has been after them.

A plant's eye view of Lake Union
The seeds in the third section of beans are sprouting!
One of the first sections of lettuce. They've put on a lot of growth in the past few days.
The lettuce plants are too short to look out over Lake Union, but the beans tell them what it is like.
I was worried about this sunflower seedling, but it has finally recovered from being transplanted and is growing quickly now.

pretty Brandywine tomato leaf
The lavender is preparing to bloom!
The first small harvest of lettuce and some young radishes to go in tonight's tacos.
