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 2016

Saturday I had my first harvest of spring crops.  Since we are moving by the end of June, spring crops are all I will have this year so you can say this is some of my last harvests.

Both daughters, sons in law and granddaughter were with us for our last family meal here at this house.  In honor of that I picked lettuce, arugula, spinach and tiny radishes for a salad.


I have never grown radishes in this garden but I planted them this year because I knew they grew quick and would show up in the garden as we marketed the house for sale.  These were tiny things but very good.




Here's the salad with feta cheese, chives and pomegranate dressing.  It was very good.

Those salads look wonderful Marcia! And what a treat, the first fresh salad greens from the garden. Radishes are always a good quick crop to grow, and I wish I had started some this spring.

You are going to have a very busy spring, good luck with the move! And it looks like you planned your salad plantings just perfectly, those little radishes are so cute.
