Subject: RE: BS: Gardening: What are you harvesting?
Rosemary, thyme, parsley, onions, and carrots from last year. I harvested the seeds from last year's volunteer lambs quarters and planted them. I have a nice (but small) crop of those. Lettuce and chard are coming up nicely. Other greens are coming up, but slowly and less robustly, even though I planted everything at the same time this year. We've been harvesting strawberries for a few weeks. The strawberries have established themselves nicely since I planted them last year.

I probably won't do tomatoes this year because although they started out very robust last year, they did end up suffering from several problems as the summer progressed. There are several kinds of legumes (clovers and some others) that have volunteered in the garden containers and I have decided to leave them in. My hope is that they will reduce the need for nitrogen supplementation in the containers this year.

The portulaca have come back from last year all on their own, although they are not blooming yet.
