What can I eat from my garden today? What’s coming soon?

My garden started last Fall. I have some plants that still are doing well, in spite of the two freezes they went through. Now that it is Spring, I am replanting. There are many more plants in the ground now (or seeds at least). They won’t be up for a little while longer. Eventually, I hope to have a much larger selection always available to my kitchen, either in my garden ready to be picked or preserved from earlier harvests. However, here is what I have in my personal ‘produce store’ today. Everything but one or two items in all of the below three lists are organic, mostly heirloom too.

Red Russian Kale, Lacinto Kale, Even’ Star Champion Collards, Cardinale Lettuce, Deer Tongue Lettuce, Forellenschluss Lettuce, Red Velvet Lettuce, Grandpa Admire’s Butterhead Lettuce, Reine de Glaces Lettuce, Early Jersey Wakefield Cabbage, Red Giant Mustard, & Moss Curled Parsley. (and five different green bean varieties in bags in the freezer, from last Fall’s harvest)

Planted but not ready to harvest yet, I have…Pac Choi, Carnival Blend Carrots, Danvers Carrots, Purple Pod Pole Beans, Hidatsa Shield Figure Beans, Cherokee Trail of Tears Beans, Provider Beans, Good Mother Stallard Beans, Arugula, Cherry Belle Radishes, Mizuna Mustard, Valencia Tomatoes, Brandywine Tomatoes, Ailsa Craig Onions, Bloomsdale Spinach, Detroit Dark Red Beets, Greek Yevani Basil, Granma Einck’s Dill, Common English Thyme, Cinnamon Basil, Common Oregano, Marjoram, Jolly Jester Marigolds (not to eat), English Lavender, Bouquet Dill, Common Chives, Sweet Marjoram, Garden Broadleaf Sage, Prairie Coneflower Echinacea, & Elves Blend Sunflowers.

Still to be planted…Rhubarb Swiss Chard, Five Color Silverbeet Swiss Chard, Red Burgandy Okra, Purple Top White Globe Turnip, Black Beauty Zucchini Summer Squash, Marketmore Cucumber, California Wonder Sweet Pepper, Sugar Snap Peas, Ace Bush Tomato, Calypso Beans, Listada de Gandia Eggplant, British Wonder Pea, Anna Swartz Hubbard Squash, Napolean Sweet Pepper, Sunberries, Sultan’s Green Crescent Bean, Galeux d’Eysines Squash, Ireland Creek Annie Beans, Bushy Cucumber, Aurora Pepper, Golden Midget Watermelon, Snow Fancy Pickling Cucumber, Black Mountain Watermelon, Ashworth Yellow Sweet Corn, Eden’s Gem Melons, Petit Gris Melons, Double Yield Cucumber.

I am behind on my planting, as usual. However, here in my part of Texas, we have very long growing seasons. So, as long as I protect my crops from the Summer heat down the road. I should be fine; though I may be a little sore before it’s all done.
