Mid-May Garden Update, Pictures

The mid-May garden is doing well and you can almost see daily growth from the plants.  Generally, the garden seems to be slightly ahead of a normal year.  The lettuce is growing very well and harvest continues about 3 times a week.  Harvest will start soon on more green onions and a few radishes.  The weather has been pretty good with just the right amount of rain.  There were two mornings of scattered frost about one week ago, but I thankfully experienced no plant damage.  The potatoes are growing like I have never seem them grow before.  It must have been all of the chicken manure that was applied to the beds last fall :-) .  All plants/seeds are in except the lima beans and green beans, which I will be planting today.  I will also be planting more lettuce seeds either today or tomorrow.  Today, I will also side dress the broccoli plants with Vegetable Alive fertilizer from Gardens Alive.  I have attached a few garden pictures below.
