Early June Garden is Growing Fast

Wow, what a difference in the garden since my last entry of 3 weeks ago.  The garden has really taken off, especially the warm season veggies.  I started harvesting broccoli on June 6th (YUM!!), which is at least several weeks earlier than normal.  The cabbage loopers/worms have returned, so I have started spraying with bt.  I started harvesting peas, with many more to come.  Harvest also continues on the lettuce.  The cucumbers have started to flower as well as most of the peppers and tomatoes.  Most of the corn is now almost 2 feet tall and the beans are starting to get some good growth to them.  The onions have just started to bulb and the celery plants will have some harvestable stalks in a few weeks.   The potato vines have started to gradually brown, which is a sign that they are nearing maturity.  The weather has been pretty good, with just the right amount of rain, which has cut my watering time to nearly zero.  I have posted some garden pictures below.  June is my favorite month in the garden :-)
