I could wait no longer to harvest something from my garden. Yesterday I harvested a full 2 ounces of lettuce for our dinner salad! I know, it doesn't sound like much. I could have picked more, but I'd like to let the plants fill out more before I go harvesting whole heads. So I plucked a few leaves off of the romaine, buttercrunch, green and red leaf plants and left the remainder to continue growing. While I did take the time to weigh it, I didn't get a picture, but it was delicious.
Meanwhile, I have heard that strawberry season has come early in the southeast and am jealous of the beautiful berries other gardeners are already enjoying. My berries are flowering but I still haven't seen any signs of actual berries developing. I will have to make the push this month to finish up last year's jams, apple butter, relish, and bread and butter pickles.
Since I'm hoping to actually have a decent crop of pickling cucumbers this year I will have to invest in some quart jars, since all I currently have are pints and half pints.
