This year was full of surprises, both with the weather and unseen other obligations. I got my spring garden started a little late, but seems to be doing ok. 4 of my store bought broccoli bolted way early and I am now down to 2, which I am keeping a close eye on. Radishes are being harvested and sugar snap peas are starting to climb the trellis. Carrots are coming up, bush beans are growing fast and beets are looking good! Spinach and red romaine are making an appearance but I don't hold out too much home with the warmer weather coming fast. I was finally able to get my Mel's Mix - bought from Veteran Compost - Justen is awesome there and delivered it for much less than it would have cost us to go pick it up - with gas and tolls. We will be setting up our 'summer' beds this weekend, along with our pots. Going to try brussel sprouts in a container - my neighbor gave me 9 plants - just to see how that goes. So far, my crowning glory are my herb pots - Was at our local May Market and a Master Gardner demonstrated how to put them together and use a PVC pipe with holes in the middle for watering... LOVE THEM! See pics below!

everything looks lovely, Kristen. For getting a late start it sure looks established. Now what's this about the PVC pipe with holes for the pot? How big are the holes and how far apart are they? Does a PVC pipe stick up so you can pour water down into it? how big a pipe and how much area will it cover? would 1 pipe cover a 1 foot square area? could a few pipes with holes be placed around trees?

Me too! I haven't been in any hurry to plant or seed squash, cukes, malabar spinach, or beans yet, as we're just starting to get nights consistently in the 50's.
kristinz, I'll be interested to hear how you do with your container brussels sprouts. I've been growing some that I planted last fall, and while they've always looked very healthy and beautiful, I've yet to see even a hint of a sprout on them even after something like seven months. Perhaps you'll be able to discover something and pass it along!
