First Taste of the Garden Season

The weather’s starting to look more consistently springy this week, so we spent some of this weekend preparing to get back into the garden. Yesterday we started seedlings for some yellow cherry tomatoes, basil, dill, thyme, and seasoning celery. We’re planning to add cucumbers seedlings soon, as well as sowing lettuce and spinach seed directly into the ground for early crops.

Taking a spin through the garden the morning, I found the garlic we planted last fall going strong. Can’t wait to start harvesting scapes. Plus, a fellow gardener gave me some arugula that overwintered in her plot. I put it on the egg sandwich you see above – our first taste of the garden this year!

    Yum! I’m thinking of taking up gardening this year, it’s just so lovely being in the garden when it’s warm, and the kinds of food you can grow are perfect for picnics!

    Looks super healthy and absolutely delicious. Great start to the new season. Thanks for posting!

  4. Arugula grows great during the winter for us; we have lots to harvest and some of mine has alredy bolted. Thankfully I went out and planted more.

    We’ve been harvesting Swiss chard all week.

  5. That looks so delicious. Thinking of starting my own garden, and the weather is cooperating… :)
