I was going to wait until tomorrow to post this, but I decided I couldn't wait. The rain this morning made such a good photo op.
The peas are starting to grow, and will soon be latching on to the fencing I put up for them. My son is waiting patiently, he remembers how awesome they were last year. When you pick them off the vine they burst sweet sugar water in your mouth, so delicious and healthy.
The broccoli and cauliflower are growing well. I'm still not sure how well they'll do. After doing some reading, apparently the spring harvest is usually more difficult then the fall harvest. If this crop doesn't work out, I'll be starting some new plants from the seed sometime in July and trying again the fall. I hear the fall harvest tastes better too. I've been checking the underside of the leaves for pests, and I haven't found anything yet. If I do find something my first line of defense will be a garlic/pepper spray.
The lettuce is growing, and I'm expecting next week I'll probably have my first harvest. The kale is growing well too, I absolutely love kale, but this is my first time growing it, so I'm not sure when it will be ready for picking. If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you'll notice some tomato plants are popping up. I have no idea where these mystery tomatoes are coming from. This is a new bed with new dirt, but I'm going to allow some of them to grow. My guess is that they are chucked yellow pear tomatoes from last season. Less work for me to do I guess. :)
Here is an obligatory pansy, just because it's pretty. Who doesn't love pansies, right?
