Oh how my garden grows...

Thought it was time for a garden update. Things are coming along beautifully! I'm about to pick some radishes (I was waiting for them to turn red, till I remembered I didn't buy red ones this year, LOL!). We've already harvested lettuce, spinach, and a few pea pods for a salad. Here are some pictures!

The peas are "pea-ing" (ar, ar, ar):

We have multiple kinds of lettuce, and the biggest spinach leaf I've ever seen (it's at least nine inches long!):

Two kinds of beans have come up (yellow and green):

And the leeks are popping - can you see them?

The tomatoes and peppers are all going strong (and the basil is popping between the tomatoes):

And the strawberries are too stubborn to die...

And this? This is the artichoke that ate Washington County. Play nice, artichoke!

How are your gardens doing?

Beautiful! But beware the artichoke, it could get dangerous! Love the lettuce- now I need a salad! Linda

No fair. You make my poor garden look puny. I've been trying to figure what else to put in my garden that my family will actually eat... thus far I've got strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, 2 kinds of tomatoes, a few radishes, lettuce, spinach and peppers.

Ours is a little better now that I've added a bunch of strawberries (a couple are trying to turn red) and a bunch of basil plus broccoli and peas and squash. We are waiting on corn and possibly carrots. Our radishes are almost ready (although we didn't plant more than about 20) and apparently if our asparagus takes, we won't get any to eat until next year.
