The tomatoes were transplanted from the greenhouse on May 21 because we wanted to be certain that the danger of frost had passed; the last frost date in Chicago is May 15. The transplants look happy.

And the spinach, which was sown directly into the soil earlier in the season (no need to worry about frost), is doing well in this bed, but not in the other two beds. We're not sure why this happened.

The potatoes are coming along a little more slowly than expected, but they look happy.

And the lettuce looks amazing!

The herbs and flower beds are getting to be fairly self-sustaining. Many herbs came back quickly owing to our unexpectedly mild winter.
