Making way

I had planted my tomato plants in among the lettuces and the spinach. I knew that the weather would warm and the greens would bolt to seed, just as the tomatoes started to put on some size. That all happened this weekend, so I pulled out the last of the greens.

The good leaves made a trip to the kitchen. The stems, flower buds and any damaged leaves made it into the coop. All were delicious and enjoyed!

Now the bed has 6 tomato plants and one mega chard. The chard is 4 feet tall and wild looking, and I have not yet been able to let it go. Soon though, so the tomato roots are not damaged by it's removal.
