Scallop Chowder with Bacon

['4 bacon slices, chopped', '1 cup frozen chopped onions', '1 large boiling potato, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch pieces', '1 tablespoon all-purpose flour', '2 cups whole milk', '1 (10-oz) package frozen mixed vegetables', '1 sprig fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled', '1/2 teaspoon salt', '1/4 teaspoon black pepper', '1 lb sea scallops', 'tough muscles removed if attached']

Cook chopped bacon in a 2-quart heavy saucepan over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 2 minutes. Transfer bacon with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain.
Add onions and potato to fat in pan and cook over moderately high heat, stirring frequently, until onions are thawed, about 1 minute, then sprinkle in flour and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Slowly whisk in milk and bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Add vegetables, thyme, salt, and pepper and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes.
Cut scallops in half (or quarters if large) and add to soup, then simmer just until scallops are cooked through, about 3 minutes. Discard thyme sprig (if using), then season soup with salt and sprinkle with bacon.
