A few herbs around the yard managed to survive and not need replanting, like this lovely chive.
Here is my kale, looking fabulous. I need to thin some of that out and eat it tomorrow for lunch! I planted the chard seeds at the same time and it is a third the size.
One surprising bonanza crop are the bok choy plants. I will need to thin out the middle one of these tomorrow too.

I know a lot of people in the Pacific Northwest have been complaining about all the rain we are getting but it has been doing my veggies a world of good. We finally turned the heat off this week. Heat on in June is just ridiculous and wrong!
