First Real Harvest
We had to clear out some of our crops today. I've been kinda picking out what I need when I need it but tonight we needed to actually thin things out. We completely cleared out our radish crop. We had a bit of a pest problem that ate about half of what was left out there, so we just pulled it all.
I have more lettuce then I know what to do with. J and I are both taking salads for lunch tomorrow. We picked a whole bunch of it and gave the leftovers to Muffin. There is still a ton left out there so if anyone wants some let me know.
Then there is the spinach. I pick and pick and yet the crop looks like it hasn't been touched. I pulled a bunch tonight so it's thinning a little. However the bugs are getting to it so there might not be too much left in a week or so.
There are some herbs in there too. I'm trying to trim some of them back. My dill, cilantro and oregano have completely taken off, it's almost ridiculous. But hey, herbs are delicious in almost everything.
