Big Bed Garden Update

Still hanging on in "Big Bed" are a smattering of roots (beets, carrots), greens (lettuce, spinach, and arugula), cilantro and parsley in bloom, and fava beans. All of these will be finished by the time the okra and squash I've planted need the room.
I've planted okra around the periphery. If this week's (and last week's) temps are any indication, it may be my best performer again this summer.
In the center of the bed are a winter squash variety that is hopefully somewhat compact, called "Georgia Candy Roaster." I figure I can let the squash roam the lawn if it needs to.
The favas did a little better this year, so if I continue planting them earlier maybe I'll get a decent harvest one day.
