We planted a couple peppers, a dozen onions, and a half dozen bok choi and spinach seedlings; moved the thyme and a couple of chive plants; and sowed lettuce, chard, spinach, and sorrel seeds.

I still have to tackle the potato bed and plant peas and do some management of the strawberry section, but now our plot looks like this:
