Lettuce and spinach harvest
Here is a big bowl of goodness - Spinach Bordeaux, Mesclun lettuce and Spinach Razzle Dazzle. The seeds were planted at the end of March - about 7 weeks prior to harvest. The lettuce was cut to allow the plants to continue production. The spinach had started to flower so the whole plants were removed, creating space for sowing of summer vegetable seeds. So with a little planning and patience and very little cost, even a small garden can provide you with fresh, nutritious organically grown food.
Vegetable gardening - a feast for all of the senses.
