Landlocked Farm progress

We're getting a late start at Landlocked Farm thanks to hungry squirrels and meddlesome cats, both wreaking havoc upon any seeds we sow. Lesson #1: start as many plants as possible to avoid seed loss! We'll be sure to implement this next year. Luckily, we've started lots of tomatoes and eggplants, which we put in the ground over the weekend. We're waiting another week or two for peppers, since our seedlings are still rather small.

Spinach and arugula finally coming up. Beets throughout the middle. The cats and squirrels destroyed all the kale.
