Another cool crop planting before the warm season hits

I was up early this morning and in the garden as soon as it was light enough to see. I started by checking out the bed that I planted with new broccoli and cauliflower plants yesterday. 
Bed with baby cauliflower and broccoli as well as some marigolds and onions to help keep bugs away.
I am putting in one more cycle of cool season crops before we go for the warm season things like tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and beans. After spending some time in the back garden and on the roof, I headed out to get some new plants put in the front. The sun in the big raised bed is back now so we should have more success with the new plants than we did with the last.
The green arrow peas in front are really taking off.

This was the area I wanted to plant after removing the old plants and adding some worm castings to the soil.

The rest of the bed is well on its way.

I added more broccoli and cauliflower here too. 

The big bed in front is starting to look like a real vegetable garden again.

The Passionflowers are starting to welcome spring by sharing their gorgeous flowers.
