Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

First Harvest of 2015 - A Basket of Greens

Here's the basket of greens.


There was a little bok choy.


Some leaf lettuce.


Some tatsoi thinnings.


Some spinach.


They all went into a pan of hot olive oil with some garlic (from last year's harvest) and served for dinner this evening as wilted greens.  They were good.

Update on what's happening in the garden in future posts.  I'm doing battle with voles eating my snow peas.  I won't get any from my first sowing and hope the voles don't find my second sowing.

Other harvests over at Daphne's Dandelions.

Looks so fresh but I would have eaten them raw not cooked.

I wish you luck with those voles. They are a pest for sure!

Dave - I put down a deterrent this morning. I've also just returned from purchasing hardware cloth (1/4") that I will put under the raised beds where I'm having the problem. Eventually I may have to do that with all the raised beds. I noticed a vole hole by one of my hosta and a stem nibbled off. Haven't seen the fox lately. I wish it would catch them.

Nasty business with the voles, hope the cloth works. I have voles here too but they seem to focus mostly on the root veggies (nearly destroyed my potato crop last year).

Those greens look wonderful. Good luck with your voles. They can be such a pain.

How wonderful that your garden is already producing! I still have snow in my yard.
