Been a while. So here's an update... Corn is going well 37 out of the 45 germinated seeds have sprouted and are doing well. View attachment 2967 . A majority of them have reached about 6in and I will be planting the beans as soon as they finish germinating. The bed where I will be planting the peppers and herbs currently has flowers and clover planted and is really taking off. I was really excited to find ladybugs have decided to make their home in the bed and are sticking around.

I did not break the green onion down further than what I started with and the green onion from the store that was meant to break down and return to the soil has taken root and is growing in the bed.

If you're looking at the stake if you look below it you can see the green onion poking out through the other plants I am currently germinating the peppers as well as the other veggies and will post when there is more progress.
