Thread Name: BS: Gardening: What are you harvesting?
Subject: RE: BS: Gardening: What are you harvesting?
Harvested my first squash and cukes today. The garlic is almost ready to dig. Pulled out the snow and sugar snap peas Sunday to make way for a 2nd crop of cukes and squash. Snap beans are almost ready to start harvesting. By the weekend I hope to have sown another crop of bush beans and to have started rooting a 2nd crop of tomatoes from suckers.

In the flower garden the first dahlias are starting to bloom. The larkspur is finishing, as are some of the yarrows. The poppies have gone to seed and I am racing the gold finches to save some to sow this fall. Stokes aster, butterfly weed, various lilies, monarda, gloriosa daisies, and Queen Anne's Lace are all at their peak. the hummingbirds and finches think they have died and gone to heaven.
