Garden Update....lettuce anyone?

We've been busy gardening - starting seeds, transplanting, planting, raking soil, expanding beds, etc. The last post (quite a while ago) I showed off our salad table we built. I'm thrilled to say that it's worked out wonderfully! Here's our lettuce all ready for eating.

So far, we've had no problems with pests or animals (the squirrel population here is a bit out of hand), so overall it was a great thing to build.

Chives are beginning to bloom:

The Bleeding Hearts are beginning to die. Doesn't the shriveled dead one look like a bean?

Our irises finally bloomed this morning. The purple and white marbled color is quite striking against the green leaves.
