This past weekend Ott, E and I harvested the first thing out of our garden for the season. Spring Greens!!!! We planted these right before Good Friday (so late March) and here they are ready to harvest already. This consists of a variety of lettuce, argula, mustard, cale and other assorted greens.
It was so nice to be able to walk outside, cut them off, and bring them in the house to make a salad with for dinner. But of course I first had to rinse them off real good. Break them up into some smaller pieces.
And then I added dried cranberries, cheese and salad dressing. Probably in a couple of weeks I will have a second harvest of these same greens for another salad. If you've never grown spring greens before I strongly suggest giving them a try. They are quick and easy to grow and in some cases the featherly leaf's or bold colors of the leaves can add some texture to a regular iceberg lettuce salad.
