Thinning my walking onion bed, if anyone wants topsets let me know. Next year I'll have some walking onions, just not nearly as many and they'll be in a much smaller bed. Pumpkins are doing well and taking over the hoop house base in a very Cthulhu manner. My yukon gold potatoes continue to produce, but in small numbers that fulfill my breakfast requirements and not much more. Next year I"ll do more to increase their productivity with a temporary frame to pile up more dirt in the bed (deeper planted potatoes produce more, but you have to get them deep by continuously piling dirt on the top). 

When Dad is done with more of his home improvement project and has an empty truck bed we'll do a lumber run to Home Depot for some cedar. I'm going to make an L shaped herb bed to go around the corner of the patio, either 6' or 8' on a side, haven't decided yet. Details on how I'll construct it haven't been finalized yet either, I'm trying to figure out the simplest construction with the fewest cuts. This year I will most likely grow some herbs but also some summer squash in the herb garden bed, no sense wasting space. 

Kiyan starts summer school on Monday for a month. Finally, summer activities are going to begin. It'll be 4 hours in the morning Monday through Thursday. Pari's stuff starts later in the summer.
