Turns out that height isn't the best indicator of vigor - these are the shortest peas (snap) but they already have a dozen blooms.
The snow peas don't have any flowers yet, and I thought they were off to the best start - best germination, rapid growth, etc.
The last batch of seeds were planted the week of May 17. On top are the garden beans. Bottom: left - bunching onions; center - carrots; right - squash.
I planted 2 kinds of chives. Regular on the left, and garlic on the right. I wonder if there's a reason why the garlic chives came up faster...I thought I planted them the exact same.
Borage is on the left. Cilantro on the right. Cilantro took almost a week longer to emerge than the borage.
