We ate the first meal out of the garden today. I picked spinach and radishes, which, garnished with the rest of a meal, was a fine meal. The spinach was everything I had hoped and dreamed. Dark, leafy, green, and crunchy. The Marigolds appear to be working, since the spinach and lettuce are now getting larger, rather than remaining a constant size.
Are you supposed to harvest spinach and leaf lettuce one leaf at a time, or pick a whole plant all at once. My instincts say to pick the leaves so as to let the plant keep producing them. If there are other traditions, I’d love to hear them.
Watched “Finding Nemo” this evening, because that was the intellectual level for which I was prepared. It was perfect.
