What is in your early garden?

I had my garden tilled and I planted new collards, sweet pears and onions and garlic.  I will plant tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers or may sorts, corn, beets, okra, zuchinni and other stuff later on.  What are you planting now????

    I'm still looking at a couple feet of snow, but I'm planning to start my seeds in a couple of weeks. This year I'm doing all herbs, and some spinach.

    Sheesh.  I still have full snow coverage.  It'll be weeks, a month maybe until the ground is thawed out and warm enough to plant.

    I've got the usual tomatoes, onions, peppers and a few flowers in trays under light. We still get a hard freeze most nights so I can't even use my unheated greenhouse yet. I have also rooted cuttings for hanging baskets......verbena, calabrachia, and bacopia mostly because they don't set seed and last longer.
     
    It has been a really bad winter, and a cold spring, but compared to you poor saps in the upper Midwest, not so bad.

     In the last week the weather has been great. We planted these  last week, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Pumpkins, zucchini, Cucumbers, butternut squash and 3 kinds of tomato plants. Yesterday we put in 1/3 of the field of sweet corn, I'll hit this first crop with some "N" when they get about 2ft high. The other 2/3 of the corn, God will shine down with the heat of summer. The Rhubarb and strawberries are looking great, we had out first Strawberry Rhubarb pie yesterday ( Not my strawberries yet). I looking at putting in some casaba melons in a few weeks. Thats it for the PNW farm report...............pnwchef

    I have two-inch daffodil shoots! And after the last few days of rain, about an inch of standing water. At least the severe weather missed us by about five miles and all we got was thunder and lightning and torrential downpours (to the north of me thousands are without power, buildings are demolished, and a small plane even flipped over at one of the little airports). But never fear...it's going to start snowing any minute now (we're predicted to get anywhere from 1-3 inches depending on which channel you watch), so that water should freeze right up.
     
    My seeds are still in packages...nobody in their right mind plants anything outside until Mother's Day at the absolute earliest here, so there's no point in even starting them yet.

    I have lettuce, carrots, snow peas, green beans & beets in the green house and are growing quickly.
    The rhubarb is going crazy outside along with the raspberries. Planted seed potatoes last week and have squash, cucumbers and tomatoes sprouting in the seed trays.
    The greenhouse got up to 90 yesterday so things should really grow good this year.
    I need to build a couple of planter boxes in the greenhouse and try some melons this year. First year with a real greenhouse and want to try to grow more stuff than I have room for!

    Ugg.  It's lightly snowing here again.  I think we'll skip spring and go straight to summer.

    I noticed the picture of Mamaw Smith and your garden on your FB page.
    Both appear to be in pretty good shape!
    We've heard so much about her on RF so it's nice to see the lovely lady.

    Foodbme:  I feature her on Facebook quite often as I reside next door.  Garden is doing great and after this next cold spell, we will plant tomatoes, cucumbers, all kinds of peppers, squash, corn and a few other veggies.  Mamaw Smith is 92 and still piddles around in the garden.

    It's that time of the year, this is why I love spring. The first 1/3 of the corn field is come in. The strawberry plants have blooms all over them. The Peach, apple and nectarine trees didn't get hit with a frost, still crossing fingers. My wife harvested this this morning.

    You're a chef. You should be able to tell the difference between celery and sausage. You sous vide one and not the other.
