Have not been taking garden photos plus I keep underestimating how much time I need to complete my tasks reason for my absence.
Still no garden photos but have a few container garden photos so am posting a short updated post of some of my containers.

First kohlrabi harvest from container, did not grow any in the garden this year.
The Kolibri on the left weighed 8 ounces, the one on the right weighed 7 ounces. They are both in the fridge for now.

Container beets are doing well.
First time growing early wonder beets, they are very healthy looking.
Wondering: What if I harvest some of the outer beet leaves while they are tender, will doing so affect the size of the beet root?
In a week or 2 when the plants grow a bit larger I will harvest some of the leaves from one side (½) of the container leaving the other side untouched for comparison.
Beet greens are delicious, use like spinach in soup or sauté in garlic and ginger infused oil.

Win Win Choy growing well but leaves are holey as I do not spray (bugs love them).
Removed the outer leaves from each plant.
Cut leaves into bite-sized pieces and made a simple but delicious bok choy soup with tofu flavored with a dash of Asian sesame oil.
Win Win Choy will continue to grow and in a week or 2 I should be harvesting more outer leaves.
Hoping to post garden photos next week.
