We had our first harvest this week - Spinach! It was tender and tasty and just perfect. Since it was so lovely, we didn't cook it and ate it in salad form. There is one more batch of Spinach to harvest and I am going to try my hand at it a little later.
I am really happy for my husband, who seems to be getting quite a bit of satisfaction from his farming efforts. He is growing almost everything from seed. He has been doing this in a little growing lab in our basement, complete with grow lights and heating pads. Since your BloomingtonGirl is no gardener (an understatement if there ever was one), I will be helping my husband by freezing and canning his garden fresh produce all summer long. I am truly not good for much else. I do like the concept of gardening. It's the reality that doesn't agree with me. Much like I like the concept of doing abdominal workouts.
I am going to go now and harvest the last of our little spinach crop. Since one can only eat so much raw spinach - there is just so much metallic after taste I can tolerate, anyway - I am planning to prepare some spinach risotto for dinner tonight and a some spinach ricotta gnocchi for tomorrow's dinner.
Stay tuned for more harvest news.
