About a week or two ago, I told you that a shoot of beets and one of swiss chard were coming up on the lanai.

Well, there is more to tell/show...I think these are the beets...There were more coming up, but I thinned it out because I was actually supposed to plant them 12-inches apart...eep! so much for reading the directions.

These are more like 2-inches apart...hope it doesn't affect the size of the beets.

And then in this planter...I got freesia coming is amazing what was in the soil I recycled!

So, among the freesia (and those pesky yearly weeds) I have two stalks of what I think is swiss chard...whoo!

And then I thought we wouldn't have any goya this year and...wham! I found a 10 centimeter one hanging on the lanai.

Hope it gets bigger, though the weather is getting cooler.

Anyway, that's the latest from the lanai. Anything exciting happening in your garden?
