First Harvest!

In spite of the fact that it got down to -1 this weekend…

Last night I made what I call Kitchen Sink Salad, which consists of me going outside and picking everything that’s ripe or needs to be thinned: radishes+greens (radish greens are a lot like spinach in taste/recipe potential), buttercrunch lettuce, red leaf lettuce, mesculin mixture, kohlrabi sprouts, borage, mizuna, sweet allium leaves, plus edible weeds like dandelion (only young leaves, which I think are less bitter), and shamrocks. Then I added herbs for a tasty suprise: anise hyssop leaves, oregano, summer savory, and lemon balm. Plus purple cabbage and crazy twisty baby cucumbers from the market. Yum!
