Spring Bed

After my last post you'd think it was all doom and gloom around here - not so! See? Healthy happy plants! (And a few replacements for those starts that went south). We have had another cold wet spring so I've been slow to put too many things out yet, lest they freeze to death. However, the brassica's are in, along with the lettuce, peas, radish, spinach, etc.

Happy little cauliflower

Lettuce is doing very well

Keeping the "tenders" (cilantro, tomatoes, basil, etc) in the cold frame until our nights warm up a bit. Even though we're after our average last frost date (4/15) we've had two nights of hard freezes so I'm playing cautious this year and might even wait till May to put anything temperamental out.

Jenn,

It all looks pretty good to me. You are behind a little I would think. My next mission in our garden is to pull the bolted kale, mustard greens, arugula and mizuna. Oh and the radishes are yummy out in the garden .

Everything looks good. I actually posted last about how my cilantro survived the winter and is a nice big plant now! And we had quite a bit of snow this year too for our area!
Your beds are looking nice.

Randy, oh just a little! (or a lot) but so is our weather. The past couple of years we've had really cold wet springs and cool summers. It's been frustrating for gardening.

Shawn Ann, Excellent that you got your cilantro to survive! It's so yummy in salsa.

Thanks EG.
