fall garden update

Most recent pics of the fall garden, taken on September 21.  It has now been about 7 weeks since I put these plants in the ground, and here they are.  As another fall experiment, I went ahead and finished planting the partial rows of the three lettuces, the onions, and carrots.  It's really late now, but I had the seed and the irrigation is already set up, so I figured, "why not?"
The kale and swiss chard are ready to be eaten, which we will begin doing this week.  Mmmmm.
The peas started falling over, so I set up this old section of chain link fence I found buried in the backyard underneath some brush.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll have peas before the snow flies.  We'll see:

I just have to say that I am totally impressed with your gardening skills, Nate. It is looking great! I wish things like that would grow in Las Vegas!
