Spring Garden

Spring is here!  Temperatures are rising, and the fall veggies are winding down. We’ve harvested the last of the lettuce and cabbage, and the cilantro is going to seed. We’ll pick the last of the fennel and celery in the coming weeks.

The tomatoes that were planted in January are doing great. They have lots of green tomatoes and will be ready by the end of the month (or maybe sooner).  The potato plants are starting to bloom, which means little new potatoes can be harvested anytime now.  The onions are beginning to form bulbs and should be ready to harvest in late April or early May.
