Harvest Monday 1/24-1/30 2012

First Radishes!

Spinach and claytonia, to add to a salad

Finally something besides greens! I don't like radishes but my husband does, we were both excited to find these. I'm sure their will be more this week and hopefully some other root veggies. We of course had eggs, along salad greens but not a lot. Everything is slow growing but at least we are at the turning point. One of our fav bloggers (Rick at Stoney Acres) just posted about the amount of day light finally coming up to 10+ hours (read it here). I'm thankful for lessons learned. We have learned a lot, mostly with help from family, friends and other bloggers. Thank you all!

Yep, the days are getting longer, spring is not too far away. Going to start my Chinese celery seeds this week.

Oh radishes!! We are still three months away from fresh radishes. There are only two of us around our place that really like radishes but we make up for the rest of them!

Thanks for the mention! I love your blog!

Your radishes look beautiful. Forgive my ignorance but what is Claytonia - its not something I'm familiar with.

New crops for the new year and they are like a tonic for a winter weary soul. I am not a big radish fan either but would do a happy radish dance to pull one from the garden bed right now. They are so cheerful and fast growing that even if not relished for eating, they are fun to grow.

I always get excited about first radishes!

Claytonia perfoliata or Miners lettuce, is a succulent and its my new favorite salad green. We are going to try and keep some in the house year room to add to salads.

I don't buy radishes, but I do grow a few in the garden; they are so mild, crisp and juicy right now I can't get enough of them. Here's to an even better gardening year!
