Early spring harvest

This year, i am feeling a little behind on planting. i have in my cold crops, and am working on getting the rest planted this week. Some kind of critter came along and skeletized all of my broccoli and most of my kale, so i feel like i'm having to start over on those. However, we have already begun harvesting some early spring veggies.

The spinach planted last fall, is really taking off again and still producing incredibly well. i have also planted a spring crop on the edge of the small garden. My lettuces were put in a little late, but are coming up well. It will still be another week or so before i can start picking it.

Sage loves to help in the garden, and is always eager to help me.

fresh organic homegrown spinach is yummy!

We did picked our morels, and are really hoping that they spored and will come back again next year. Although with morels, there is just no guarantee.

So far this spring we have already harvested over 1 lbs of rhubarb and a little over 1/2 lbs of asparagus. The asparagus is just getting started, and it looks like we are going to get a pretty good crop. It's amazing how fast it grows! It can jump up several inches in a day.

This is only the beginning of the season, but i am already looking very forward to future harvests and homegrown meals.
