First Harvest 2011

Really it's not much but enough for a small salad. Spinach, lettuce, chard, basil, green onion and radish.
At this point it is mainly symbolic, but it was grand to have a home grown salad for the first time since last summer.

Here is the garden tonight. Still not sure how much production we'll see out of it in a season. But that is part of the fun!

Until next time, Keep Digging & Eat Well!

  1. Your raised beds are maturing fast! This part of your garden looks uncannily like mine now.

  2. Congrats on your first harvest of the year! There is nothing better then a salad out of the garden.

    Your garden looks very happy and healthy. I'm sure you will have many nice harvests from it this season!

  3. I am a little impatient Mark. I have concerns about the quantity we'll get this year, though hat is probably premature.


    Thanks Robin, I hope you are right! It just look so small!

  4. The first harvest is always great, no matter the size.
