Checked the asparagus patches...about 1" is above ground on several stocks...saw a man walking along the road collecting wild asparagus (yes, I made note of where he was and vow to take a walk there on May 18th). The rhubarb is ready to pick...the potatoes are up (some of them), good germination on the peas, onions looking good, some "volunteer" cucumber/zucchini/squash plants, and there are various things in the wrong places (thanks to the girls scattering the first batch of seeds we planted). And still counting down to when I can pull the first radish. Those grew quite abit with the rain we've had. Soil temp is 18C, so sweet corn can go in if the rain stops and the ground dries up...(can't do that where the chickens can be--they love corn!!!). I guess it is time to move the girls to their City home...

Not much, the tomatoes are already harvested and done! I am in Arizona. It's already getting into triple digit temps sadly. A few things left and doing well: Basil, chives, and a rosemary plant that thrives even when I forget to water it :) I have a meyer lemon tree that I almost killed that is getting ongoing TLC and CPR. It's looking better after dropping all of its leaves. Currently am searching all local nurseries for a dwarf fig tree!

Everything's in the gardens at the farm except for the tomato, celery, and pepper transplants. Oh, and eggplant. We have radishes (small), everything is coming up--except for the beans, they just started going in, and the cantaloup. We even got the small (about 40 ft by 50 ft) garden mulched yesterday and today, as well as the 3.5 acres mowed. I'm beat. The other gardens we plant so the rows are far enough apart the bulk of the weeding is done by rototilling. Otherwise, we'd have to hire field hands to keep up with the weeding here and in the City. Let the waiting (or should that be weeding) begin! I'm hoping for new potatoes for my July 1st potato salad. How're things going in your garden patches?

You'll like it. I replace toast with greens. I heard a nutritionist on the radio not long ago encouraging people to include veggies with breakfast.

Not really a big greens eater, but Kathleen is and SHE will like it. I will likely tolerate it (though I am willing to give it a go).

Keep an open mind, FrankZ. I like runny yolk mixed in with the greens...or, dress it all up and make eggs benedict.

I'll post pics of the gardens tomorrow. Too tired tonight and the light is fading.
