I have spices growing, spinach coming up, onions and garlic producing great plus the strawberries are doing good....I have tomatoes and peppers to still plant....we are suppose to have another freeze Tues. night so still in house but getting tomatoes and peppers already....
We are just getting "starts" in stores now.....bought lettuces, greens, and some seed yesterday for getting our beds going. Still learning Western WA gardening.....quite different from CA where ya just plant and keep it watered......Washington seems to be better for hearty cold crops, with pros and cons....cons are the winter, but we will get past that soon enough.....
We did prety good with Tomatoes lasst season, but had to pick them and finish ripenng them inside (deer and shorter days) That is where a hothouse would be beneficial. My sister says for those of us in colder climates, if your tomatoes aren't gong to be finished before the cold sets in, dig up the rootball wrap it in plastic to keep it moist and hang upside down (topsey-turvey) they will keep producing until you get you're able to get all fruit off the vine.

Peas be with you all...LOL! MIne are up and about two inches tall....spinach, lettuce, radishes and swiss chard are in....have to wait on the rest for warm weather....it's still frosting at night up here!
Got Pole Beans & Squash up and the rest on the way. Good luck with your Gardens.
Yes we are building a raised garden bed and have started a compost pile.
We're changing the soil in our raised beds and will plant tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, radishes, onions, broccoli and peas. The asparagus is more abundant this year. We can grow year round in Az., even in the heat, with a shade screen up. Cantaloupe grows well here with enough water too.
And there is still two feet of snow on the ground in Northern Michigan............
