Densely Planted and Overgrown

From left, kale, beetroot and tomatoes.  Hiding underneath: dark opal basil, honeydew

Honeydew vines beginning to reach out over the edge of the raised bed, tomatoes (purple calabash) right behind them.

You are looking at approximately 3 months of growth from the time of sowing these seeds; these photos are at least a couple of weeks old already and things have become even wilder, spilling out over the path.  It’s what happens when you sow a heap of seeds with the intention to thin / transplant seedlings out into the garden, only you don’t.

We’ve had a lot of beetroot leaves to use as spinach, not sure how the actual beetroot will turn out being so densely planted, possibly more of a carrot shape!
