Today I had the best salad ever! The hard neck onion bulbs got buried a little too deep due to the extra soil added in the fall and are the perfect scallions for salad with a very long white stalks.
The "French Breakfast" Radishes are ready to pick after 30 days since sowing them. A great mild variety if picked in time.
The Spinach leaves in the salad today are from only three plants that I left in the ground last fall and came back like small evergreen weeds early spring. These are first to the plate with large meaty deep green leaves like no other variety I tried before.
Also in the greens category we are growing several varieties of lettuce:
|Mesclun (a mix of 20 herbs and greens including several lettuces)|
Couple extra rows of Oak-leaf lettuce makes me think that we will swim in greens this summer.
In the herbs category we have a strong come-back from the mint, lovage and oregano. Started basil, parsley and annual thyme.
In the fruit department, the blueberry bushes look very promising loaded with blooms. Bees come by! Bees come by!
The alpine strawberries started from seed last year look amazing.
And lastly, the fig tree made it to life from the cold garage. I didn't even water it for four months.
The raspberries don't look promising but maybe another year.
