The garden greens are growing and ready for picking! This is my favorite time of year. Rows of spinach, arugula, romaine, sweet onions, radishes, and more look fresh and green when contrasted to the earthy soil below. A few weeds here and there poke their faces through the greens, but they are 'under control' and life goes on without fretting over them. Basils, mints, oreganos, fennel, and other herbs dot the garden bed, waiting to add flavor and zest. And there's even some catnip for kitty.
Violas and lavender blossoms join the greens, radishes, and sweet onions in the basket, ready to be rinsed and made into a salad for lunch.
Yummy, raw, green, tender, crisp, flavorful, and healthy. It's time to eat! Can you join me?
