What to Plant for Better Daily Living

I found this at some point on the internet.  I am sorry I did not keep the source. 

Funky Veg Kit: Zucchini

I received a garden gift called the Funky Veg Kit.  Inside the kit were planting medium, peat containers, seeds for colorful vegetables.

When spring came, I started some of the seeds.  The yellow zucchini is doing a good job growing in the sun.  Foot inserted for scale.
This photo shows the plant in the afternoon sun after the June marine layer burned off.  The big problem during June is fighting powdery mildew which loves the moist air mass.

Spring in the California Garden

Thank you Mother Nature for a winter of rain.  Plants and shrubs are blooming prolifically this spring.

The garden called this weekend and it was time to put some tomatoes into the garden.  Two beefsteaks (one an heirloom) and San Francisco Fog. 

In doing some prep work, I discovered a very large beet!  Here it is root and all.  Look at those beautiful greens.
