Greens Galore

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?

  9. gorgeous looking salad.
    yum!
    hey..I posted something on my blog..bulk tea herbs that I had recently bought that I just need to clear out.Maybe yourself or one of the gals might be interested? I just don't have the time or the space anymore for creating the teas what with trying to get the house ready.
    visit me at www.gardengoose.blogspot.com to see what I have listed there.
    I was able to make a few specialty teas, but have so much herbs left over that I really cringe at the thought of them going to waste.
    If you aren't interested can you help me at least spread the word..maybe someone that likes to make their own teas may be interested??
    thanks in advance.

  10. I am very encouraged by the greens. My daughters greens are growing and we have a few more weeds than yours, nice to know the garden is valid. She offered to weed it about a week ago. I know the lettuce is basically ready to eat.
