Exploding Growth & Harvest Monday - May 19th

With all our rain and cool spring temperatures, the plants around the yard are just exploding with new growth.  It all looks so lush.  Here are just a few scenes:

the glen garden - a profusion of hosta and ferns

The vegetable garden has been exploding in growth too and we have been enjoying the lettuces, spinach, and bok choy.  I haven't been very good at taking photos though but here's a representation of some of what I've been harvesting.

Green ice and butter crunch lettuce

The tomatoes have been planted though I'm supposed to get some more as a thank you from Squash Blossom Farm for supporting their Kickstarter campaign.  Peppers have been repotted.  Some basil and parsley planted in the herb garden.  But do I have photos?  Sorry no, not at this time.
