The harvest this week went into a salad for four and a finishing salt.
Out in the garden we got some progress and some surprises.
Sometime in December, in what was the Malabar Red Spinach Bed, Mixed Salad Greens were sown. Nothing happened. Three and a half months later we have:
Ignore the weeds growing outside the bed like crazy (notice the relative lack of weeds growing inside the bed though), that’s Arugula and other salad greens finally sprouting up! They were dug up and transplanted into pots. You can never have too much salad.
The compost was turned over into the empty bin:
The Highlight of the week however was this beauty:
If you can’t spot the golden goodness, here’s a closeup:
TOMATO! First of the Year! In March! (Better than last year… can we do better next year?). Couldn’t tell you exactly how it tasted since it was tossed in the salad. But the salad was delicious.
Looking forward to a busy week in the garden here, to see how other people are getting along in March around the world, check out Daphne’s Dandelions!
