First harvests! Here are my "micro greens" from a few days ago--I felt very chic serving them up like a fancy restaurant might, however the reality is they are the fruit of my thinning out the rows of lettuce. Ha! Yummy and fresh tasting though, with just a little balsalmic vinegar on them (the kids just ate them plain).
And we have started to have a few ripe strawberries. It's so hard to pinch off those unripened buds like I know I really should with new plants, so I pinch some, and let some mature, so we can enjoy the sweet results. Oh! How sweet these berries are. I am spoiled for life, I am afraid. Grocery store berries will never be the same to me. Yum.
Botanical Interests, and the plants are Chef Jeff's, from my local garden center.
5.1.11 Third planting
Tomato seedlings- 3 'Roma Plum', and 2 'Super Sweet 100' (cherry tomato) plants.
Basil- Italian Large Leaf, one 3' row.
Squash, Summer- Black Beauty Zucchini, 6 seeds in one hill.
Beans- Pole, Blue Lake, two 2' rows.
Now we just need some sunshine, some rain, and time! I'll try to get a photo of the whole garden soon. Today was too drizzly and grey to have photos do the garden any justice.
