Garden Today

Actually, this is the garden yesterday, before 1.4" of soft spring rain! On the left is the row of new Swiss Chard. I had planted the Bright Lights, but didn't like it as well as the heirloom type I had been growing the years past. Even though the seeds were 2 years old (Renee's Garden), they were still viable! Surrounding the chard is onionis. On the right is a row of Sugar Peas.

This oregano has been in this pot for several years. It sat out all winter and is obviously ready for spring. The pan underneath is a water heater pan. It holds water and keeps ants out! On the right, Romaine lettuce with onions.

Kohlrabi, on the left, is going to seed. Some are still producing, but this row will be turned over to other purposes soon. On the right, a mixtyure of cabbage, cauliflower, and romaine lettuce.

Left photo shows shallots surrounded by onions. Right photo is broccoli row!

This row still has the last of the older lettuces. On the right is cauliflower (not doing great) and romaine lettuce (doing really great).

The row on the left has garlic with a random cilantro and a few lettuces. I failed to take a picture of the collards but I can say that they are knee high because they are starting to bolt, so they will be pulled soon. And there is one more row with onions and some unphotogenic turnips.  On the right is my set up for sifting comport. the compost pile you see is not the finished product, but the middle stage. 

And the little upstarts: tomatoes, eggplant, cucumbers, melons, squash, jalapenos. 
I have planted one row of squash. I like to get them in the ground early because the bugs really get them.
