Subject: RE: BS: Gardening: What are you harvesting?
I love living in Seattle. We are eating the lettuce, chard, and cilantro that's been growing all winter. The garlic chives are ready. We put in spinach, parsley, and more lettuce a couple of weeks ago and it's almost ready to start eating. The thyme seems to be good year 'round. The mints are springing up all over the place. I think I'll have to contain them in a big pot. The strawberries are starting, and there's some other kind of berry that my wife got from a friend last year and stuck in the ground. It's flowering now, so we'll be able to find out what it is soon.

We just came back from a couple of weeks in England and found the yard in bloom -- foxglove, rhododendrons, roses, sage, rosemary, rock rose, iris. The magnolia, tulips, and fosythia went off just before we left.

Spring is good . . .
