more seed-planting

At least a little of everything is planted now.  Unlike yesterday (and tomorrow), today's temps were pleasant. 

Planted today:  fenugreek, basil, melons, squash, cukes, zukes, a second planting of favorite mustards, and the Chinese mosaic long beans.

Already being harvested:  the first planting of mustards.  Japanese giant red mustard is definitely a keeper:  beautiful and a nice mustard flavor.

Already bolted:  the...galilee? spinach, some of the Bloomsdale longstanding, the sorrento broccoli, and some of the radishes.

Coming along nicely:  lettuce, the other spinach, chard, the other mustard greens and spring broccoli raab, the potatoes, peas (just starting to bloom), and beans (just starting to poke out of the ground).  Tomato and pepper plants are doing well. 

There's still some room in the garden:  two more wide rows left.  One is supposed to be for beans and one is supposed to be for squashes.

Phenology:  spiderwort and irises (Japanese and bearded) blooming, dropmore scarlet honeysuckle in full bloom, weigela just starting to bloom, Siberian peashrub done blooming and starting to set pods.

The next few days are supposed to be hot, and rain chances are iffy.  I don't have the drip irrigation installed, so I guess there will be more garden-hosing in my near future. 

Asparagus harvest is erratic but still plugging away.

Made a batch of curry chicken and mushrooms, and a mix of seasoned brown rice, red lentils, and mango. 
Friending welcome, but lurking is fine too.

Constructive criticism is also welcome - whatever it is, trust me, I've heard worse.
