I put in thyme, rosemary, cilantro, basil (holy & genovese), oregano, parsley, dill, and two more I can't remember LOL. I only have 9 squares in that bed.
The other two beds were filled with: spinach, rainbow carrots, jade bush beans, purple pole beans, green arrow peas, sugar snap peas, ithica lettuce, black seeded simpson lettuce, salad bowl lettuce, golden cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli (packman that I harvested the seeds off my own), walla walla onions, some unknown pkg of onions, brandywine tomatoes, early girl tomatoes, cukes, sugar baby watermelon, and herbs planted throughout some extra spaces.
It felt so good to be out in the garden again. I have missed it. I got so busy throughout the fall and winter, and all of the holidays and gatherings that go with it. Plus the garden wasn't producing so I was very frustrated. I thought I was going to be so on top of things last fall but apparently not! My mind was completely on Jake's diabetes diagnosis and it really took us a while to get into our new routine. However, I'm ready to take back the garden!!
Hope you all have a great weekend. I will continue to clean up the rest of the beds. I've got 8 more!

On my way in I noticed a few things that survived the weeds and the freeze. I figured I'd grab a little radish for the bunny on the way in. Uh, yeah, this is little??
LOL. So I decided that was a bit big for the bunny to have. I gave him some of the leaves though. He tasted them a few times then determined they were worth eating. He can be a little picky.
Tomorrow I will go out and do some more cleaning and hopefully have the garden back in production this coming week. Time to plant some seeds for spring harvest.I need to check in on you all and see how things are going!
