Here is an update of mostly my vegetable garden, weeds and all.
Cabbage surrounded by volunteer cherry tomatoes. I have about a billion of these cherry tomatoes and I have weeded out another billion! Scallion to the upper right.
Broccoli with spinach and interspersed with onions.
Garden peas are blooming, scallions in front.
Scallions are an explosion, with lettuce/mesclun in front. A few peas are in back but they didn’t really care to grow under the dryer vent there.
Celery. If you were following my celery story, this is from a 1 ” stump of celery from the supermarket that I stuck in a shallow dish with water for a few months, then planted in the ground. Supposedly I can keep cutting the stalks and new ones will grow back.
Comfrey leaf bigger than my hand. I planted a bunch of comfrey in the fruit orchard but I had one little root left over. I stuck it in a pot since I couldn’t throw it away. In just a few weeks these gigantic leaves emerged. They are bigger then the ones planted in the orchard!
I just returned from a visit with my good friend Lisa in Indiana. Her location is one growing zone colder than mine and yet her flowers were about 1-2 weeks ahead of mine. We had a warm March but Indiana must have had an ever warmer one. Her are a few shots from her gardens:
Pretty peonies came into bloom while I was there.
Very large frilly iris.
This is actually an iris at my place–just started blooming.
