Today was the day. The first harvest from the garden.
Before the harvest, I did do some more planting. Escarole and more lettuce went into the Potager, and lettuce and escarole went into the ornamental/edible bed. I also put in a few sweet peas against the fence.

|The left bed in the Potager. The Swiss chard and lettuce are starting to grow rapidly.|
The ornamental edible bed is slowly taking shape. There were 4 'Full Heart Batavian' escarole and 'Wild Garden Mixed' lettuce added.
|Hopefully this bed will start to fill in soon.|
My pride and joys.
|The white tree peony, it scents the entire front yard.|
|The dappled willow at it's best.|
|Two hosta's I grew from seed. I love the golden foliage of the one on the left, and the right is a "streaked" hybrid with uneven streaking that shows up later in the year.|
Elsewhere in the yard.
