The first harvests of the year.
Harvest Monday is hosted by Daphne's Dandelions.
Finally I was able to start eating real salads. Being of Sicilian descent, I grew up eating sharp and bitter salads. Long before it was trendy My grandmother and mother were growing arugula, endive, dandelion chicory and escarole to use in salads. In fact lettuce was the green that was used the most sparingly.

Today was another rainy day. The soil was just to wet for any outdoor planting. The day was spent cleaning the light stands and starting the last of the flower seeds. I'm keeping my fingers crossed I can get some planting done by the weekend.
