OUR FIRST HARVEST!!!!

Garden plots change so much from week to week; it’s really fun to go out there and see what work has been done, what’s been planted, what’s sprouting.  Today we discovered that some folks are already planting tomatoes and peppers.  That is so exciting!  Debi and Paul had some tomatillo and anaheim pepper plants that they picked up at the Garden Center.  I’m thinking I might have to do the same since the plants that I’ve started from seed are looking pretty anemic.  At the rate they’re growing, they may be ready to plant by the end of May. Humbug.  I don’t really have the patience for seed starting.  So, my first big lesson from learning to garden is that starting from seed takes forever – much more satisfying to buy healthy looking plants all ready to put in the ground.

We did thin out the little lettuces  that have sprouted in our plot and now have a bowl of microgreens to use in a salad! A very small salad.
