We have lots of radishes and green onions that I picked yesterday. So today’s harvest was half a dozen types of lettuce and some wild Russian Kale.
I pulled up all the Pak Choi today. It had gone to seed. Spring is over in the garden. Let the summer begin!
A variety of lettuces make the best salad.
Think this is a lot of lettuce? Not me. The season for homegrown leaf lettuce is much too short for me to tire of it. Same thing with Asparagus. The season is too short. Too short.
I got my seed from
Nichols Garden Nursery
Todays Harvest Basket
First Harvest Basket of 2014. Pak Choi, onions, radishes, lettuces. Plus, there is a pint or so of strawberries we’ve been getting every day this week, Ozarks Beauty. We are also finishing up Asparagus season this week.

One interesting thing, is that there are a few radish left, hidden in the lettuces. They are big and only as hot as the smaller more traditional radish. Not fiery hot or pithy. They are pink and red and a few are white.
Some of these big radish have gone to seed. The flowers a small and dainty on tall wispy stems. I hope to save some seed to plant next spring.
