Well, it looks like this is the end of the line for this year's (massive sarcasm quotes) "cool season" here. Pea production appears to be slowing down significantly, and I'm pulling out the last of the lettuce while some is still edible. Much of it is too bitter to eat. New lettuce stopped coming up over a month ago, of course.

Sweet potatoes are planted in containers of aged compost, and have put out leaves. Cherry tomato is waist high and has a number of immature fruits on it. The other tomato plants have been getting limited sun due to a thicket of bolting rocket while I was too busy with work to clear it out, but I've done that now, so we should see some growth. Garlic is forming bulbs. As soon as I finish getting rid of the last of the lettuce and arugula I need to get the eggplant and squash in so we can get the summer started.
