Beets - "Detroit Supreme" (Burpee Signature)
White Onion Sets - 3 in apart and some 1/2" apart for greens

Peas - "Pea Progress" & Pea Mammoth Melting (both Burpee Organic)

We also took the tomato plants I started out into the garage to acclimate them for the colder weather outside and purchased a bunch of peppers, cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower plants from the green house. Still have more garden to put in.
