The first day of June has arrived, and we still have more crops to come!!  Today we transplanted all of our eggplant and pepper plants.  These were planted in the middle of a few beds which had onions in the front and either cucumbers or pole beans in the back.  This arrangement allows us to grow more crops in a smaller space.  We have a root crop growing in the front of the bed, a bush-like crop growing in the middle of the bed, and then a crop which will grow up the lattice on the fence in the back of the bed.  This increases productivity and is a better use of the space we have.  We also found a nest of robin eggs in the apple tree which is in the garden!  They will most likely hatch very soon, so we will be keeping our eyes on that nest.
