Temperatures rose above 60 degrees for several days and the corn sprouted. Also, intermittent rain has definitely helped everything along, especially the peas and spinach. The temperatures are cooling off a bit for a couple of days and I hope this will allow the spinach to produce before the warmer Summer weather causes the plants to (inevitably) bolt). Also, in the background, the campanula ('Birch's Hybrid') has bloomed.

This Saturday I'm planning on spending some time cleaning up the plot (removing dead foliage, cutting back the tulips) and planting some corn starts. I need to check out Swanson's and pick up some corn as temperatures are warm enough to plant them. And, of course, more weeding. Thatch grass and fireweed is still present throughout the plot.
