intensive, circular bed. Center=radishes, peas around outside of donut, carrots and chard in the moat surrounding the thing. The plastic forks mark the point where the 'Tall Telephone' and the sugar snap peas meet; and the carrots meet the chard.
One week later... The peas, radishes and carrots are all up. We had two inches of rain this week (the last week of November), and today it's quite warm (about 82 degrees). Not really extraordinary weather for this time of the year, though it's call the 'dry and cool' season. Though the Midwesterner in me resents this kind of weather in December, the garden has loved it!
