The year seems to fly by when the garden is your timepiece. The first (strawberry) harvest is already over for 2015, and 8 weeks after putting the first seeds in, the greens are now ready to start picking. There is so little waste. If you need one leaf, or twenty, that’s what you pick. Lettuce, spinach, kale, beet greens and rainbow chard are all in my garden this year and I’ll keeping picking at them for as long as they survive. The onion greens will probably make it into something too.
The first potato plants are now huge with the second ones not far behind. And, although it’s still a few weeks until the carrots will be large enough underground, the tops are holding their own above the dirt.
