Today I planted various and diverse things in various and diverse locations, and weeded a bit, and beamed over the safflower and red flax coming up. And I harvested my first produce for 2008: mixed greens for salad, including five kinds of lettuce, spinach, kale, rocket, and a couple of turnip leaves for good measure. I only took one leaf from any given plant, and ended up with a little over an ounce–not because I’d run out of plants but because last year I routinely picked too much for a given meal and was trying to correct that tendency. Naturally, I overcompensated. So I added some Bibb lettuce from the farmer’s market. Starting now, I won’t need to purchase greens from the farmer’s market for a while. Ha!
