Harvested my first bit of lettuce and spinach Wednesday night and it was so tasty!! There’s nothing quite like eating salad that was picked 5 minutes before eating. I’ve got an okay crop of greens coming in though it’s not as thick as had hoped it would be. I planted it pretty dense but we had such a warm spell back in late March/April that I think it stunted things a bit and gave a head start to the weeds that were plenty happy to have the warm weather! In any case, nice to have fresh salad!

I’ve also started harvesting strawberries from the plants donated by friend and fellow Fredericktown Revitalization member Juli. I probably won’t get many this year but the plants are healthy and should produce very well next year!
