Subject: BS: Gardening: What are you harvesting?
Time again to compare notes amongst we Mudcat gardeners. I've been picking large sweet onions out of the garden for weeks now. This is partly for use, but mostly strategic late-season thinning so that some of the small ones will hopefully now fill out and also become 1-pounders. I've been cutting and using chard for several weeks also. The old plants wintered over and are going full-tilt now.

Of the crops that I have planted since the last frost, the tomatoes are taking the lead, though the peppers are making good headway. I picked my first ripe cherry tomato two days ago (Tuesday). It will take ages for the eggplant to get big enough to flower, and the squash are small and won't bloom for a while. I popped the flower heads off of the garlic last week. My neighbor tells me this will make the bulbs bigger. We shall see.

I have lots of herbs that came back from last year. Thyme and lemon balm are particularly prolific this spring.

What do you have in your garden? (And Bobert, what are you trying to transplant?)
