Container Gardening Take-Off

Bush beans after just four weeks raised from seed.
The carrots are doing well, too. I planted them in with the bush beans. Only one bean plant came up in this container. I replanted and am waiting for another to rise.
Onion raised from an onion that was sprouting.
These red onions were just bulbs a couple of weeks ago.
The potatoes are thriving!
More potatoes and some beets. The plant in the back is kale,
Berries soon! Yay!
The peas are doing well too!
I stacked up some pallets and put a piece of wood on top to make a table. Keeps the plants away from the dog and makes it easier to weed and water. You can see the Swiss chard plant near the back that has the brown leaves. I make the mistake of taking this plant out of an area that was slightly shaded and putting it in a full sun area. The leaves turned brown from the extra strong light they had and weren’t used to.
This is my best tomato plant, Oregon Spring. You can see it already has some tomatoes on it.
