    We might have some tstorms later so I clipped some herbs that were likely to get beat up. L>R - Dill, oregano, basil leaves and rosemary, in the background is the lettuce I keep growing inside for sammiches I get it at the supermarket, they sell live growing heads for $4 so I use the part I need then plant the rest. I usually get a good month of fresh leaves so I rotate two or three so there's fresh lettuce year round. Click image for larger version.

    That window box planted with greens is as pretty as any flowers.

    Your celery prompted me to mention that I'm starting something called Lovage, very old school and so very hardy. Grows here in the alleys, 6 feet tall, smells of celery.

    First zucc! Slow start to the season and of course that's what we get first. We switched to the round variety in an effort to control yield a bit and not get to October absolutely despising all forms of summer squash and feeding them all to the chickens... Hopefully those little guys do the trick.

    I was weeding yesterday and had to pull off a crazy amount of volunteer tomato plants. As in more than 30 of them. We've kept a few that popped up in good spots but the majority are just on top of each other and taking over the whole garden. I'm impressed at how well they do honestly, they're from fruit that falls to the ground, spends the winter exposed to the elements and the ravenous chickens, and eventually gets tilled into the soil in the spring when I do garden prep. I takes me quite a bit of effort to get tomato plants from seed in a controlled environment and those volunteers are out there not giving a shit growing super well. In a particularly lazy year I could see taking chances and letting the tomato forest grow unrestrained.

    I took the tack of attacking the flowers.

    I still haven't tried that, should probably do it instead of groaning about having too many zuccs

    I've been thinning the volunteer tomato forest by potting them and when they're ready to go I put them out at the end of the driveway with a Free Tomato Plants sign and they're gone in a few hours. I have 5 more ready to go out later.

    Brilliant! I have a gigantic stack of little pots I don't want to toss in the garbage. Definitely doing that next season, thanks!

    Wow, besides soil prep and container choice they grow pretty hassle free in my area. Bugs aren't too into them but each year I'll find one or two caterpillars munching on them.

    I cut holes in the bottom of large deep plastic storage totes to use as planters. Compost in the bottom then hand sift all the soil that goes into them so there's no lumps to impede the root growth. Sow a pile of seeds, then thin once sprouted so they're all an inch or two apart.

    Besides that just water and occasional fertilizer. They do well here, but take a long time.

    I have a variety of beets that grow long and tapered like a carrot and they grow in maybe 5 weeks. Sure wish somebody could figure out how to cross that speedy growth with the flavour of a carrot!

    We're slacking here folks. It's prime growing season for most of us and it has been a week since anyone posted

    Here's the link to that album I keep adding to. I put about 30 new ones in this morning.

    Re: Carrots. I have a feeling it has to do with my water because I don't have much luck with most root veggies. I do fine with alliums but not great with potatoes, sufficient but not great.Turnips, parsnips and beets are mostly failures if I have a dry early summer like this year and have to water every day.

    germination is the hardest part of carrots, imo. the soil has to remain consistently moist but not soggy for two weeks

    When did you plant those Norseman? I'm on the east side of the Cascades and just pulled the last of my garlic out to dry. My scapes were at least a month ago. I think I planted in mid Oct.
