The beets and carrots look great although I didn't plant tons of them. I'm trying to decide if I want to try root cellaring them (which I haven't had much success with previously). The edamame is covered in immature pods. Every few days I'm still getting another half dozen pods of peas, which I eat while still in the garden. The melons and squash have now spread across another row of the garden. It's seriously like some horror movie.
Even on my back, Willow helps. She pulls leaves of branches she can reach as I bend over or I hand her a twig and when we carry loads over to the big debris pile she tosses her contribution on. She also regularly takes turns with me on who's wearing the sunhat at the moment. It made my work this morning much more enjoyable. It's probably also a lot better exercise to do yard work with a toddler on your back. Once again, yay for the Ergo Performance baby carrier. It's so well designed that she feels like almost no weight.
