The potatoes are finally ready to be harvested. James dug up a small patch for us to eat, and they were delicious with some of our beans and corn and some sliced tomatoes.
The second lettuce crop is not growing as quickly. The spinach isn't growing quickly either. I assume it has something to do with shading issues, but really there is a lot of sun that hits the garden throughout the day, and we have had a lot of rain in the last month since I planted them. At the rate the spinach and lettuce are going, I expect to harvest them in the next two to three weeks.
The kale is doing well but not quite ready to eat.
I also grew some broccoli in buckets--which I intended to transplant to the garden--but it seems the bugs ate every single broccoli (nearly 300 broccoli plants).
Below I have posted pictures of the tomato, squash, corn, pepper, and cucumber harvests...
