    Chives are one of the first things up. Like weeds they are. They were already popping up when the snow came. And they are perennials so you do not plant them..they just pop up every year. Very hardy. and they spread like crazy.

    Egyptian walking onions are up also. need another week before I take any of them.

    Just my citrus trees. They're already full of flowers, starting the cycle all over again.

    Chives are up like crazy. Seriously there is nothing that comes up so quickly, lasts so long, and is virtually unkillable. And good to eat! And attractive!

    Same thing with those Egyptian walking onions. up early in the Spring, last late into the fall, virtually unkillable, and all parts edible..the topset bulbs and underground bulbs edible, the shoots good cut up like scallions. yummy!

    Lots of fruiting plants blooming now.

    Any ideas for any other edible plants?

    the squirrels in my yard have been greatful for all my *&*&^&^&%!! strawberries, I can tell by the way they wave at me as they carry off my favorite fruit. Tree rats!

    Our garden is doing well so far, we've finally gotten over the late night frosts. I'm so tired of covering plants.. it takes hours.. then uncovering them. We have a pond as well and I'm surprised that most of the plants came back. A squirrel was drinking out of the pond yesterday, not the bird bath but the pond. I think he was just trying to piss me off - I think he was smiling.

    I don't have anything top contribute to this thread fruit or veggie wise, but my first flower appeared on my Lilac tree.

    Into the sunrise. The sunset is sad to me….it only means the night is coming.

    I love June - my gardens are finally producing all the greens and herbs I can use! Picking lettuce, spinach, chives, baby leeks, parsley, baby basil and dill.
    Peas and potatoes are coming soon.

    Strawberries producing like mad. *yums!* Kiwi vine set fruit, but alot of ..well..nearly all of it..has dropped. Too much rain probably. A few blueberries set on my struggling tiny container dwarf blueberry. Chives have multiplied like crazy.

    *Just checked..I have a grand total of about 2 dozen kiwi fruit left. But the vine is alive at least, and survived the July heat wave/drought transplant..and I did have to cut two thirds of it off..so I guess I should not complain. Plus the squirrels that would eat them are not around here, and I doubt the birds around here even know what they are.
