Harvest Monday 4/26/10


This week I harvested a few ounces of Sorrel and I remembered to take photo of it as it is the first harvest from my new garden! (Although I did transplant the plant from the old one). We baked it into a quiche with some fresh eggs from a neighbor. There is one small leaf of kale in there because I found at least three kale plants that survived the winter from the previous owner. They had been knocked over, but yet survived. I transplanted them since they are a red leaf variety that I don't have. I hope they will go to seeds and I'll be able to save seeds from them. In the mean time they are putting on a bit of new growth.

Some of my first sowing of lettuce is starting to fill out so maybe next week I'll have a small salad.

You can see what other gardeners are harvesting at Daphne's Dandelions.

Congrats on your first harvest from the garden. I can't wait for that from my new garden. It is getting close to getting the house, but a ways yet from having a garden.

Yes, Congratulations! Let it be the first of many. I love the little kale leaf nestled in the middle.

Kale is tough - I hope you get some seed from it!

First harvest from a new garden! That must feel wonderful!

My daughter has been pinching sorrel from neighbor's gardens! I guess that's a hint to start growing my own. I'm glad you're getting a harvest up in VT, though I'm sorry to hear that many parts are getting snow.

Dear Emily...I love reading your posts and seeing the photos...my kind of healthy eating! Lisette weeded my tiny garden spot at the patio in the back but it has more to be done before planting! The spot is a little shady but i have grown a few tomatoes and cucumbers there when i first moved her 12 years ago...even though deer did discover it.
