Harvest Monday, May 7, 2012


I am back on the band wagon with Harvest Monday over at Daphne's Dandelions!

Though it isn't much yet, the past two weeks I have been harvesting bunches of lovely Spinach from a raised bed hubby planted in late winter!

My scale battery is dead, of course, so I haven't been able to weigh in my harvest thus far.

I have also been enjoying tons of fresh herbs from my herb garden. The dill is coming in nicely, and as of late, I have been using some of the orgeano, thyme, chives and sage! I plan to get a jump start on drying out my herbs this year too!

Be sure to hop on over to Daphne's Dandelions and check out other gardener's harvests for the week!

I still haven't planted any spinach yet and I really must get around to it - yours looks particularly good.

Nice harvest of spinach. Our spring planted patch is just getting some decent growth on it. Very slow this year for some reason.

I haven't harvested much more than herbs so far, but I did have my very first squash harvest a few days ago! I was giddy! Have a great day, Allison!

Dill would have to be one of my favorite herbs just love it with scrambled eggs.Great looking spinach mine is still a few weeks away.

Nice healthy looking spinach. I allowed my dill to seed and now I have dill everywhere, love them but now it is too much of a good thing.

I followed from daphne's and this is my first time on your blog. I can't wait to dig in and read about your farm!

Nice to 'meet' you! Your spinach looks yummy; mines all gone in the heat already, replaced with amaranth and chard.

Yay for spinach!!! I definitely didn't plant enough last fall and completely forgot to do a spring planting! Crazy! Enjoy it while you can! It's one of my favorites!

Craving for spinach now.
Ours only have a pair of true leaves growing at the moment.
