    Eating anything from the garden yet?

    Are any of you eating anything from your gardens yet? 

    We have lettuce & green onion tops big enough to use & have had a few small dandelions mixed in the salad so far.  At this point in time, we only have enough for 2 salads a week, but we are using the onions almost every day, because they are there.

    I have chives, cilantro, oregano and rosemary that are ready to harvest. I have been using the chives chopped up on baked potatoes and the cilantro when I make Mexican food.

    Yes, some baby lettuce. Things have cooled off a bit, so I likely won't see any of my herbs for a while

     Still eating onions, squash, tomatoes that we put up last harvest.  Planting season here is in May--mid to end of the month.

    That is our usual planting season also, but the last 2-3 years it has been unseasonably warm early, & pushed it back, but there are always a couple of frosts.  That is one reason I experimented with the glass cloches, to try to lengthen the growing season, a least for a few things.
