Most of the lettuce mixes can be clipped. Mustard greens, too. I am so ready for fresh greens from the garden!
|Rainbow swiss chard, one of my favorites.|
|Sunflowers reaching for the sun.|
|Something new this year, chinese cabbage and horseradish.|
|I have been enjoying these sauteed over pasta and rice, and in eggs.|
|I also enjoyed my first rhubarb harvest.|
I found a wonderful Heidi Swanson recipe for strawberry rhubarb crumble that incorporates toasted pine nuts. Truly delicious.
Basil seedlings. I planted a generous patch with high hopes for another big batch of pesto like last year.
|Another new addition, broccoli rabe. The taller ones I started early indoors.|
|I have a huge wave of calendula that came up from last year. Into the salads they go!|
|Royal burgundy bush beans and soy beans. I can't wait to try fresh edamame.|
Scarlet runner beans so short and already flowering. They are not climbing the trellis as I had hoped.
|The brandywine tomatoes are beginning to flower.|
|My peppers are actually growing! These are hot – cayenne, jalepeno and red chile.|
|Scallop, or patty pan squash.|
|Snap peas (planted in late March).|
|I think I will have a crop of blueberries from the Bluecrop blueberry bush!|
