We just harvested our first veggies of the year from our garden.

Radishes!

Last year the first thing we got was strawberries.

Today we got radishes.

The only thing so far is a few tomatoes,the cukes should be coming in in a few weeks,have some bell peppers and jalapenos ready soon. The green beans are coming along nice. I do have a tree full of peaches ready to hit the ground any day and I have no idea of what to do with them all. Any ideas?

Peach jam, peach ice cream, pickled peaches. Fresh peaches sliced on top of cereal is good too.

We got our raised beds built really late so it will be late summer for most of my harvest. This week we've been enjoying spring onions, mmmm so good on a salad. I think my lettuce should be ready for harvest in a couple weeks. The turnips are a mystery to me, as is what I was thinking when I bought them.

I am thinking of making peach wine,I think there is at least 100 lbs of peaches on that tree,probably more,had 0 last year,but I need to freeze them,can them or both. They go bad very quickly. Saw some pears on the tree also,first for it.

Harvesting radishes and a handful of peas. Weather here was so strange this spring -- 15 straight days of rain and no sun, so I'm a month behind practically. But the corn is coming up good and so's the green beans. I can't wait!

Radishes are done here and I left a couple to flower and go to seed for next year. Been getting kale,spinach,leaf lettuce ( which is about done and starting to bolt)and getting enough peas to freeze now.Cukes are flowering along with the sugar baby watermelons and the tomatoes. cabbages are huge this year but not ready yet. Pole beans are up finally and about 4 inches tall. Will start to plant some bush beans probably in the next day or two along with another planting of carrots.


Canning peaches in a light syrup is really easy. And some peach shortcake or cobbler wouldn't be too hard on the tummy either lol

So far... weeds. Not many, but the veggies are weeks away from harvesting.
I could probably use some of the green onions, but I'll wait for them to grow a bit more.
Patience. Not my strong suit. lol
I may just be over optomistic, but so far, it's looking like a great season.
Can hardly wait for the first fried green tomatoes.
Lots of blooms, some tiny tomatoes, healthy looking plants overall.
Good luck to us!
Ohhh...some mint already and the basil is delicious.

Asparagus, leaf lettuce, buttercrunch lettuce, green onions, swiss chard, basil and parsley. Radishes very soon. Strawberries are on. This past weekend, I got a few ripe cherry tomatoes out of a hanging basket, and hundreds are starting to turn. Spinach is beginning to bolt.

Its been cold here and the snow just stopped about 2 weeks ago. So far we have been able to harvest spinach, lettuce, green onions, leeks, some herbs, and the peas should be ready soon. I got the radishes in late because I forgot about them! Hopefully in the next 10 days I can start picking those. Everyone is worried that we might not get any fruit this year. We had freezing rain while most of the fruit trees were blooming.

Well, we have had a fantastic early growing season here north of the 49. In the part of Canada I'm in planting weekend is usually the last or second last weekend of May, so nothing has been in the ground for long.

That being said I made the first gourmet salad yesterday from my 5 different types of lettuce, topped off with fresh green onions. I'm a couple of weeks from my first strawberries being ready for harvest.

Yup, that pretty much it here until July.

Uugghh. We must be neighbors! I'm glad I chose to do a couple raised beds because I think my seeds would have washed a mile down the road if they were on the ground here.

A lot of green tomatoes, but getting fungus or something on the lower leaves. Have been cutting one or two pods of okra every day, just throwing them into a baggie in the freezer. So far, this first garden in many years gets a C+, I sure couldn't count on it to live.

I guess technically our first "harvest" was strawberries, I started a small patch this year and some of the plants had green berries on them from the nursery. Just a half-dozen or so, kids ate them up.

I did scratch out some new potatoes a few nights ago to go with some steaks on the grill. Yummy. I guess that was our first "real" harvest.
