Leaves of April

This is when gardening starts to really pay off! You've been nursing all of these little seedlings and plants for weeks and constantly watching the weather to make sure they are protected from frost on cold nights. So here it is, the end of April and as I look out across the raised beds where I plant roots and greens I see the many leaves of April.
The leaves of the mixed greens, spinach, mustard, butter crunch, red sails, red salad bowl, romaine, and swiss chard. The colors and textures are amazing and I love seeing the light through the leaves. This is the time of year when I start to plan our meals around what is growing and ready to harvest in the garden. It looks like for this first week of May it's going to be lots of wonderful salad!

  1. Great harvest, Noelle!
    It's the time when a gardener can feel fulfillment after hard work!
    I and my family also enjoyed harvesting onions just yesterday.
