Last weekend we got off to a good start!  Amended soil. 
Put in transplants.  Seeded.  Less than a week later,
seedlings are peeking out from beneath the soil! 
(Photo on right includes radish and beets emerging!)

We have a lot going on in several areas!  Collards, eggplant and peppers (still producing from late spring plantings), cucumbers, tomatoes (Early Girl and Talladega), broccoli, cauliflower, onions, squash, zucchini, red cabbage, basils, and emerging seedlings of spinach, lettuce mixes, radish, beets, parsley, carrots and cilantro!  Notice the grid over one of the lettuce mix boxes?  That's to keep the cat out!  I ran her off, grabbed some twigs and short bamboo and the orchid clips to get a makeshift cover over it!  I already had to replace soil and reseed both boxes because the dogs made a bed in them! 

Now, we wait, hope and pray that the tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico doesn't wash it all away.  The forecast predicts over a foot of rain for our area along the coast.  Ugh.  We moved the containers under porch cover, except the ones next to the raised beds.  Gonna keep an eye out on the freshly planted 4x4 ..... supplies on hand to build a quick cover if needed!  Y'all stay dry out there!
