First Spring Harvest – 2017

I spent another couple of hours getting the garden under control, and things are looking a lot better now. I cut off dead stuff, harvested some  broken stuff and leaves that were torn or had bites out of them,  but would still be good to eat. I washed everything carefully in the sink and then patted the leaves. I harvested two gallon bags of lettuce and two of spinach. This is the lettuce I harvested today. It’s mostly romaine.


And this is the spinach. I hoping that the roots are good and strong and that the fact I had to harvest way more than I would have normally won’t hurt the plants.  I got a pretty good workout with the 3-1/2 hours of gardening today, and I feel good that I managed to save a lot of what I had to remove from the plants for us to enjoy.

  1. It is good, that you get to use these leaves, even if you have had those damaged because of the weather. Usually the roots are more strong. I have also been working in my garden, cleaning weeds mostly, which was also necessary.

    • We’ll have some of the lettuce and spinach in a salad for dinner tonight. They don’t have to be pretty to taste good. :0) I’m glad the weather cooperated with your working in your garden. What are you growing this year?

      • Good to hear Linda. I have bought some new flowers, Lavender, Campanula & Begonia in the last days and I hope to be able to enjoy them for a long time. If I find space, some will be planted around here. I don’t have more than holes in the ceramical’s here, so I can’t do so much more. I would love to find some nice bowls for flowers too.
