I planted quinoa for the first time this year. I wanted to see if I could grow it and how much of a yield I would get from each plant. I planted 4 starts in one square foot. They really like our warm days and cool night. I will be able to harvest by Sept.

I saved some seeds from a unknown heirloom melon two years ago. I planted a few in soil blocks back in Feb not thinking it would grow. There is a baseball size melon and a few more marble sized melons now growing in bed 4.
Last year was a total bust for cucumber but not this year. I think this is my best year yet for cucumbers.
