what's growing mid-way through April...

Here in the Mid-Atlantic area we have had near perfect Spring weather for gardening. Just the right amount of rain (ok, maybe a bit too much at times), gorgeous sunny days, and not too cold nights. All of this after a Winter of heavy insulating snow cover had added up to excellent conditions for the Spring veggies.

My Cold Crops are coming in nicely from the seeds I put down a few weeks back. I've got about a month left before I will turn this bed over to the Summer crops and the next month will provide an abundance of fresh Bok Choi, Arugula, and Turnips...



The Wintered-over Kale is still looking good...



I recently moved the Swiss Chard out of the Cold Frame and into the herb bed...



The early starts in raised beds have almost doubled in size since I planted them. Each of these beds have sown seeds of Carrots and Onions in the back rows that are all sprouting nicely.

Chinese Cabbage...



Mustard Greens...



Collard Greens...



and Baby Bok Choi from seeds are my favorite Spring crop...
