Right now, we have
|Enough for 2 people all season!|
Bunching onions in Bed 4 - which are just starting to bulb out and will come out soon
Red Russian Kale in Bed 8 - again, staying until it's time is past, giving us a "mess" every other week or so. This bed also had some cabbages, which are now eaten...so I threw some cilantro seed into the bare half of the bed.
Various herbs in Bed 12 - parsely, thyme, sage, garlic and a couple of struggling lavender which The Master Pruner pruned rather harshly, but I am assured it will be happer for it.
Bed 9 has a couple of Chinese cabbage plants that I'm going to save seed from. The brassicas put on a very pretty early spring show of yellow flowers!
Bed 10 - The carrots ran out a couple of weeks ago, so that bed got some Tendergreen mustard, Bibb lettuce and radishes for quick salads in 2-3 weeks.
Bed 11 - Spinach followed beets here, so they'll be ready for thinning to add to the salad soon.
Bed 5 - This bed is a no-till/mulch/pile it on bed and got it's first seeds... Multicolor Chard. I only planted the outside few feet closest to the driveway, I'm hoping it will look pretty since it can last quite a while into summer. We can plant something not quite so attractive 'inside'.
Bed 6 - I'm trying some Giant Red Mustard here...it's coming up slowly

just press, then plant!
Along the front fence, the peas are growing quickly, I just hope it doesn't warm up too soon. I got them in a little late this year. I think from now on, I will sow in the fall and let them hibernate at 2" tall like they did last year, that was my best pea crop ever.
In the back yard, I set out some tranplants of red cabbage, Joi choi, Chinese cabbage and a flat early dutch or two. I have some Napas of two varieties in flats, but one was almost a total failure, while the other is up and going in 48 of 50 cells. No clue what happened, I planted them the same day, same soil mix. Isn't gardening fun?
How's your spring going?
