    1st harvest of the year

    1st batch of the year! We should get about this much each week from now until end of June when the hotter weather crops start to show up and through the fall. From left to right: red, green and butter crunch lettuce, spinach, arugula (both bagged), curly kale, radish, bok choy and kohlrobi. We sure feel fortunate this year. It's looking really good!

    Wow! We are just getting leaves on the trees and waiting for lilacs. I'm jealous.

    We raise a small # of hens on-site, so 2nite it's PF Chang's style lettuce wraps. Kale and onions cooked in, wrapped in bok choy and lettuces. Yum. Lots to be grateful for!

    No doubt. We can't plant until after this weekend due to cold and frost.

    Dale, the greens are beautiful. We do not do a garden anymore but the farmers markets are really starting to hum around here. We have had an early frost-free spring and the early peaches have started to trickle in. Of course, with peaches, the rule "first to market, last on flavor" applies. So far, it has been a great strawberry and asparagus season, and it looks like local sweetcorn will be ready in a week or two. But really, life does not begin until the homegrown tomatoes are on the table!

    Very nice! We haven't even begun planting yet, can't wait. Noting like picking and eating your own. That looks very yummy!

    Your produce really looks nice. I really miss having a garden, but my husband does'nt enjoy working in it like I did. I use to do all the outside work, including the lawn. I loved it and he hated it. Now I'm lucky just to get the yard mowed, and forget about the trimming and the garden. He did feel sorry for me and bought me four tomatoe plants for my pots on the front porch. So I might have my own tomatoes!
