My Spring Garden

My neighbors are generous and have allowed me to have a small garden plot on their lot (they have direct sunlight!) I try to plant organic/heirloom varieties as much as possible (I think about 80%- 90% of my garden is from organic seed or plants).

This year I've planted :
Malabar Spinach
Spinach  (sadly going to seed)
Four different types of Lettuce
Five different types of Tomatoes
Cinnamon Basil
Sweet Onions
Sugar Snap Peas

I also have a garden plot about 2/3 the size of this one at my house; it's pretty humble. We don't get more than 6 hours of sunlight so the plants there don't grow as full/beautiful.  In that plot I am currently growing parsley, lettuce, beets, spinach, and kale.
