Garden Report 2013.04.23

Lettuce is nearly finished.  Starting to bolt as the temperatures increase. 

Dug one of the garlic bulbs because there were small cloves starting to form on the stalk/neck.  My research tells me that there is no harm in the cloves forming in the neck.  I was very pleasantly surprised with the size of the underground clove and will leave the rest in the ground for a while longer.

Cut the first artichoke and discovered that there are 3 more small ones forming on the plant.  This is the first experience growing artichokes.  My advice so far, feed heavily.

Tomatoes and peppers are blooming and setting fruit.

Just love finding these guys, swallowtail butterfly caterpillars.  They are so bright and colorful.
