Harvest Monday 4/1/13

Today was a beautiful, warm day.  March brought temperatures well below normal and it seemed that spring was never going to arrive, but today changed that outlook.  Spring seems to have finally arrived and to celebrate I harvested my first spring salad.  (Well, more accurately this was a fall planted salad that survived the winter and was harvested in the spring.)

My first spring salad consisted of freckles lettuce, radish, some broccoli side shoots, and some mini carrots.

All chopped up and ready to be savored on the back porch on a glorious spring day:

This weeks tally:

Lettuce: 2.4 oz
Radish: 2.2 oz
Carrot 1 oz
Broccoli 0.5 oz

Weekly total: 6.1 oz

That's all the harvests coming from my garden this week, to see what others are harvesting check out Harvest Monday at Daphne's Dandelions.


  1. I'm sure that incredibly fresh salad was even even tastier for being consumed out on the porch on a glorious day. Happy Spring!

  2. I so want that for dinner. I miss having salads. Last year I was kind of tired of them, but now I'm dying for one.

  3. Nice salad. I think it's a pity that not many of us can grow lettuce in the summer when a good sweet salad can really be appreciated. Yours looks great!
