First greens for the season

First harvest of the year! Ok, not exactly planned it but my seedlings were way overgrown and it's still too cold to plant anything outside - it was only 28 degrees last night, so I trimmed them and made a salad with fresh crisp greens.  It was yummy! Visit Daphne's Dandelions
 to see what others are harvesting!
 Then this Saturday I got my shipment of onions from Jung - this is actually a replacement shipment for original order as first batch was in such a bad condition that I tossed it out and sent an email to the customer service with picture of what I received. Now the replacement came in. So sometimes this week I'll plant half of these into the main garden. The other half will go to the community kitchen garden as donation.
The varieties that I will have this year are: Ailsa Craig, Walla Walla, Red Candy Apple, Copra and White Candy hybrid (this one definitely for the food kitchen garden).

I also cleaned out the beds in small garden now that the ice melted, and seeded radishes, beets and snow peas. Will wait until Friday to do greens, potatoes and regular peas as the soil is way too cold.

So what are you doing in your garden this week?

    1. I love growing onions so I can always go out to the garden and pick whatever i need to make dinner without wasting any or having "old tough" taste.

  2. I started my transplants late (because of the cold), but you make me wish I hadn't. I little harvest of greens would sure be nice right now.

    1. It feels very odd to eat "seedlings" but it was very refreshing and tasty. I just wish it would get warm enough to plant salads outside already.

  3. I am very late this year with seed starting, hoping to get some going this week.

    1. I'm very late with most seedlings as well - peppers didn't wake up until this weekend and tomatoes had to be all replanted. I hope they'll be ok by the end of May to be transplanted.

  5. We were lucky in Florida this year because the weather was great. Hardly any frost days so we had fresh tomatoes all winter.

    1. I wish we could have winters that stay above 40 so I can have veggies all year round!
