few leaves of arugula, chard, and lettuce with 7 sugar snap peas, a pea vine, and a sprig of dill...
mixed with some veggies we had in the fridge and strawberries our generous neighbor grows in her backyard. topped with a blackberry vinaigrette johnny boy made using leftover berry sauce and balsamic vinegar. berry yummy!=)
last year we had our first garden salad a week earlier, but this year we started our lettuce from seed.
technically, our first harvest was last week when i picked some arugula. not being too familiar with the taste, i threw some in a smoothie. very interesting! let's just say i'll stick to using it in salads.=)
the video below i saw on sam's blog yardsnacker inspired me to make compost tea for my plants.
i rounded up the following...
5 gallon bucket
1 quart compost
aquarium air pump
and rigged up this little system. every so often i add about a half teaspoon of unsulphured molasses to feed the microbes or something and a capful of fish emulsion with each brew for good luck. i'm not really sure of what i'm doing... just going with it!=)
the plants seem to like it...
