The First Harvest

We've reached another milestone here at our little farmhouse - our first homegrown harvest!  Today, I picked some spinach, baby lettuce, tatsoi and purple mizuna for a salad.  While this was a rather meager start by anyone's standards, I couldn't help but to think and hope that this will be the first of many harvests this year and in the years to come.

  1. It might be small, but it looks really good. I think I might have my first greens harvest this coming week. I can't wait.

  2. What a perfect looking harvest! Small or not I always love the first harvest of the year! Good luck with your new garden! We are on our first full year at a new garden as well, it's always fun to start new!

  4. Beautiful greens - lucky, lucky you! Mine are still languishing in their cell packs as our weather has been so cold/windy lately that I haven't even finished constructing the beds they are to be planted in. I've been hardening them off for 2 weeks now & it looks to be at least another week until the beds are done (we are expecting four (4!!) days of rain starting tomorrow). Keeping my fingers crossed that they will not be set back too badly.
