Zone 5ers - What are you harvesting?

Are your sugar snaps ready to harvest?

Mine are tall - a few feet high - but no pods, yet...

Spinach, green onions and asparagus. The peas have a ways to go. It has been cool here.

Radish and romaine as babies to thin them. My peas seem to have a way to go. The 90+ degrees we have had these couple days seems to be wilting them.

It's odd, everyone talks about peas needing the early spring coolness and don't like the heat, etc, but it's been in the 90's here the last week and HUMID big time, yet my peas are growing like weeds! They went from being tiny ittle sprouts to almost a foot tall this week.
Could it the daily evening waterings?

My radishes should be ready this weekend. 2 of my tomatoes are blooming but still need to grow so i've been pinching those off.

first year gardening "for real" so I didn't plant any cooler weather crops this year, but I have grand plans for next year
Growing: brandwine heirloom toms & early girl toms, red bell peppers, cayenne, poblanos, 2 types of cukes, bush beans, peas, lettuce (seeded), and poultry herbs around the perimeter of the garden.

I have harvested small potatoes, peas, small onions, lettuce, baby carrots, a baby tomato with more on the way and swiss chard oh and tons of radishes.

My peas have gone bonkers about 5 foot or more now we are in that 90 degree heat wave thingy as well. But they are still producing a bunch, but for how long?

I may as well forget cool crops from here on out it's summer baby, time to concentrate on those, the fall will be here in a bit so time to try again.

The zones turn into a patchwork around here so I flip a coin as to my zone, 5 or 6.


Lettuce, spinach, green onions, and the first strawberries of the season. I have some broccoli misbehaving so it will get pulled and eaten soon. My sugar snap peas are being duds this year thanks to moles.

The only things I've enjoyed from my garden so far are lettuce and rhubarb. My sugar peas are annoying me to no end, they are tall and beautiful, but no pods yet.

Didn't plant much yet, but will get out there this weekend and get all my seeds planted. I can't wait for my first tomato.

Jenny O - I'm in Grayslake/Gurnee area so our schedules will probably be the same. :)

My toms and pepper plants are going in, this weekend too :)

Poeple who live close to me! :D I'm in Berlin, about 20-30 miles west of oshkosh.
And don't feel bad, my plants are still sitting on the back table waiting for me to decide what to do with the garden :?

Spinach & Arugula if the bugs hadn't got at it, probably could grab up some lettuce too but I want to let it get a *little* bit bigger :).

I've yet to start harvesting (except for the chives), but I'll be harvesting some radishes soon. You could try radishes in some short rows. You can get a pretty good harvest.
