First Harvest!

Four short weeks after I planted* spinach, argula, Romaine and kale, I picked my first harvest!

I know it's this crazy early, warm spring, but couldn't be more thrilled.  I hope this means that the market will see little of me until July!.

Ten days and I can put seeds in the ground (tomatoes, ground cherries, and scallions from GrowJourney) and then a week later the bedding plants!  Can hardly wait!

*I started with four-packs, not seeds.  Will try that in the fall. 


  1. We are planting greens this year. I can't wait; wish I was there. Here the crocuses are blooming and the daffodils will be in a week or two.

  2. How cool is that! Just waiting for some dressing of Dijon mustard, shallots, lemon juice/vinegar and EVOO. Nothing like a homegrown salad. Are you doing some herbs too? My greens are still a 4-leaf affair but should be coming along this week. We still had a little frost last week.

  3. Frost expected tomorrow night and again Friday, so we are not over the hump yet. am still holding off on planting "fragile" stuff, and will bring a pot of basil in for the rest of the week. Willb e glad when we finally get to the 15th ... our last frost date.

  4. Your first harvest evokes wonderful fresh feeling. I can imagine this flavor.
