The fall crops are fading away and the spring crops are enjoying the warmer weather.

On the left the Swiss Chard has really taken off.  I find that it grows much slower than traditional Southern greens in the winter, but then puts out a lot of new growth when the days are warmer and longer.  On the right the Orange Peruhle has set fruit.  Sweet Treat has also.  The slicer tomatoes should set blossoms this week.

Below is a picture of one of the beds. It is a prefab bed made of cedar and bought from naturalyards.com.  It is a very good and visually attractive product but is an expensive option. On the left in the middle you can see green beans that have just come up.  In the foreground the arugula is blooming.  I like to have some blooming plants all the time to attract beneficial insects.
