Welcome to this week’s Tuesday Garden Party. I don’t know about your but our garden is really starting to take off. We have some nice sized strawberries forming. The bees have been busy on the raspberry bushes and it looks like we should have a nice crop of those this year too. We also have some blueberries forming too. I can’t wait to try those great tasting berries soon. It shouldn’t be long for our strawberries.

From your host this week, Jami @ An Oregon Cottage:
We’ve had a couple weeks of cloudy and rainy weather, which is more typical of our Pacific Northwest springs than the dry, warmer weather we had through April. Flowers are blooming, the first strawberries ripened (but sadly were a bit flavorless from all the rain), and my containers will be planted this weekend with purple, pink and white color spots. We are harvesting lettuce (and more lettuce…), chard, green onions (I just pull the smaller onions to make way for the others to grow bulbs and these are our ‘green onions’), and asparagus. The peas are blossoming, so any day I’m looking for the snow peas first and then the snaps.
The cole crops and tomatoes are LOVING their covers, growing like crazy even with our cooler weather, and I will start hardening off the peppers to plant next week (it’s supposed to warm up, so the timing should be good). Planting the warm weather seeds (zucchini, beans, corn, and pumpkins) is all that’s left for the summer garden!
What are you guys harvesting now?
