I need a drum roll or confetti coming down from the ceiling. This week I harvested the first of my overwintered spinach. Finally I can join in with the harvests. So here it is, 3.7oz of greenness. Can I get an Ooo?
Can I get an Ah?
OK so it is just a little bit of spinach. Some of you won't even show your harvests every week because it is just the same old same old lettuce. But this is only my second picking of the year (the first was kale in February). It has been over a month with nothing fresh from the garden, so I'm celebrating. It is also the first time I've ever tried overwintering spinach. The leaves aren't quite a perfect as the spring spinach will be, but not bad.
And there is breaking news from the pantry. The last jar of pickles has been opened. I won't get anymore until the peas get harvested and I pickle some of them. It is going to be a long pickle free couple of months. Maybe I should try to make this jar last a while. It is hard though. I ate three of the pickles yesterday. Usually a jar won't last the week.
So now for the tally. I have a whopping $1.83 on the plus side and $188.68 on the minus side so far. That minus side will get huge this year as I build my new vegetable garden and since I'm switching gardens I might not have as much of a harvest. Time will tell.
If you would like to join me in showing off your harvests join me and put your name and link into Mr. Linky below.
