Got peppers, tomatoes, carrots and chamomile planted this weekend.  Also put in a flower bed w/sunflowers, zinnias, and daisies.  My raspberry shrub is sending up shoots but I doubt it'll get big enough to produce any fruit this year...

I've put in 4 or 5 tomato varieties,brocolli, carrots, radishes, tomatillos, melon, squash, corn, peas, and ground cherries. I had potatoes over winter and the asparagus actually did something.

Got most of our stuff planted - peas, beans, two kinds of lettuce, spinach, and onions.  Still need to get tomatoes and a pepper plant or two.  Once I see how much room the tomatoes take up I'll fill in the rest of the area with beans.

Couldn't plant until now because it was getting below freezing at night.  Of course right now it's 89 degrees.  Think I'm safe  Thumbup

Got our tomatoes planted yesterday, some more beans, a row of eggplant, and single pepper plant.  Our freezer is still full of jalapenos from last year so I think we can go kind of light on those.  Smile

So all the planting is done and now I can just do some weeding for a few months 'till harvest.  Hopefully the lawn lady won't spread grass seed all over the garden like she did last year - 5 seconds for her to shoot 'em over there, two hours for me to pull them all up.

Most of our stuff is doing pretty well.  Tomatoes, lettuce, onions, eggplant, even the spinach is doing good.  We've got two little bean patches - in one almost every bean came up, in the other maybe 20% of them.  Only disappointment in the peas - out of maybe 30 I planted, 3 came up.  THREE  Hatred  I replanted a bunch more but I imagine those seeds aren't any good, I'll probably have to get another packet.  Probably replant some more beans too.

The lettuce and spinach is doing great, so we have been eating a lot of salads.  Harvested some beets the other day that was enough for two dinners.  Barely put a dent in the number of beets, so we are set on beets for the summer.  The tomatoes are looking great, and the beans, squash, zucchini, carrots, scallions, and cucumbers are doing good.  The peppers are doing OK - I don't think it is hot enough for them yet.

Garrett's strawberry patch has recovered pretty well from the vole damage, but it's been so wet that we have to pick the strawberries when they are still not quite ripe - if not they go bad before we get them.  Next year I'll try putting down the black plastic around the plants to help keep the fruit away from wet soil.

Nice avatar Trev...I presume you are staying on top of tending those pizza plants?

It has been wet here too.  Picked the first strawberries of the season this morning.  The other berry bushes are covered in tiny fruit...rain must be good for that at least.

Tomatoes and some beans on the right



Peas are doing okay.  Only 3 came up originally but I planted some more and most of those came up.  That's some spinach to the left.



Onions (I suppose I should thin those out), lettuce and eggplant.



Flowers.  You can just never have too many flowers.   Smile

Jack, if those are scallions or green bunching onions you can just let them all crowd together.  The larger-bulbed type do need thinning.  Thanks to Darksider for the gift of onions a few years back that got me to try them.  Now they are a staple in our garden all year!

We have had a steady cycle of sun most of the day and then rain at night for about a week.  Our garden looks like something out of a prehistoric movie.  Over the last five days we have picked about twenty cucumbers, about the same number of zucchini and squash, and a made a huge pot of beets that barely put a dent in them.  Some of the beets are larger than tennis balls!

Blueberries are coming in, and they taste awesome.  The peppers are looking better, the tomatoes look are starting to be really laden with fruit, the beans are doing well (about 3 or 4 quarts of beans already picked), and our carrots are ready for harvest as needed.

Garden onions are amazing under the right conditions.   

Jack, the tomatos look great!
