It's a Salad!

Actually, we've got a ways to go before it's a full-fledged salad, but it's exciting to see things growing! We made a 4' x 6' raised-bed garden: no tilling, no digging, no weeding...ok, I've pulled six weeds (which leaves plenty of time for riding!). It's our first year growing veggies...so far, so good! We plan to expand next year, now that we kinda, sorta know more about what we're doing.

A bumper crop! I remember your post Memorial Day weekend when you put the bed together. The photos are impressive! That seems really fun, efficient and responsible.

We just harvested our first broccoli. Fresh, unwoody broccoli tastes strange at first, but I'm sure I'll get used to it...

Did we forget to plant salad dressing?
