|Baby lettuce and edible viola blossoms|
So a recap of the weeks harvesting, mostly a lot of baby lettuce, which is good considering that Organic Spring Mix is over $5 a pound at the store and I can eat at least two pounds a week. I've been tossing viola blossoms into the salad mix too. I tried my big purple pansies and they were OK but nothing to brag about. The violas have a slightly sweet taste with a lingering floral essence. They are more bite sized, too.
|Baby lettuce and Easter Egg Radishes|
Another day there were several Easter Egg Radishes to pull along with the baby lettuces.
|Radish, mizuna, spinach, lettuce|
On Sunday there was another radish, some mizuna and some baby spinach in addition to the lettuce. There was also 2 ounces of little tomatoes. I've moved the tomato pot into the greenhouse for more protection. We haven't had a hard freeze yet but when we do I expect the tomatoes will be done for, even in the greenhouse.
