Harvest Monday on Tuesday and Other News

Harvest last week of a romaine like lettuce - don't know the name as I planted it last fall - and two green onions which all went in to a Caesar salad. Se other harvest at Daphne's Dandelions.
This is that lettuce growing. Anyone recognize it?

Irises are finally blooming.

First columbine is blooming.

I purchased a lot of annuals at Lurgan's in PA near Chambersburg. It's Amish owned. I have lots of pots and hanging planters to fill.

Here are my tomato plants waiting to be planted. I think they are yellowing and I'm aiming to put them in on Thursday.

Onions are so green.

Time to harvest more spinach and the peas are enjoying all the rain.

Lettuce and spinach is doing really well.

Recognize the seedlings below? Tomatoes are germinating from the compost I added to the beds. It must be a sign that's it's time to plant my tomatoes.
