Better to plant late, than not at all

We're off to a late start here at the Blake Garden. We lost last weekend due to a bad cold that hit both my husband and me. So today, we were busy catching up, planting beans, and stuff that we just hadn't got around to planting, like broccoli plants and red onion sets.
I planted parsley a few weeks ago, but it didn't come up. The spinach, Swiss chard, kale and green onions are coming along nicely.
Our asparagus and rhubarb have made their annual return and are producing well. I still haven't made rhubarb pie, but I gathered all the other ingredients from the grocery store. The recipe is on a recent post.
We have an excessive amount of volunteer cilantro growing in the raised bed garden. I guess I will dry it and save it for salsa season.
 We probably could have planted tomatoes and peppers today, but we always wait until Memorial weekend, even though I think it's warm enough at night now.
