Recent rains

The garden (not just the edible portion but the lot of it) has really been exploding recently thanks to the rain and my seedlings are starting to look like identifiable seedlings instead of teeny tiny leaves. Took some photos today and they're up on Flickr. We're got the golden beets, which you can see already have a nice lovely golden tinge to them, growing alongside the kale. Meanwhile, the bok choy is growing so quickly that I may need to thin again; I'm going to hold out as long as I can so I can make something with very small baby bok choy. (Would calling it fetal bok choy be in bad taste?)
