The carrots were large averaging abour10 to 12 inches with some specimens 14 to 18 inches long and 2-1/2 inches in diameter at the top. Flaover was good although they were probably juicier a week or two ago.

3) Harvested a tub (about 1.5 bushels) of Georgia Southern Collards. Plants are growing vigorously and leaves taste a little like turnip greens.  Seems to be a good summer variety of collard. Cut bottom course of leaves/stems.

4) Planted about 6 Sweet Basil plants provided by a person from the OHK. and healed in two Thyme plants.

5) Cut and placed fence for trellis on bed C2
