First Harvest! Yeah!!!

20120519-225831.jpgLook close at all the wonderful kale in all it’s glory, ready to harvest. It’s in the shadiest part of the garden. (these were starts I bought about a month ago)

Here is a link to the selfsufficientgardener website and podcast. I love listening to this podcast while I work in my yard. It doesn’t always apply to what I do, but I learn a lot and am often inspired to do something in a new way, like grow vegetables in the shade!

First Harvest:

6 oz of salad greens

red russian kale

dinosaur kale

arugula sorrel

red oak leaf lettuce


flashy troutback lettuce

buttercrunch lettuce

harvested greens with strawberries, banana, avocado and raspberry vinegrette and walnuts! Yum
