Getting excited about the harvest

It may only be June 4, but tonight's picking of a full bunch of radishes has me psyched! Last year I tried to keep track of my harvest, listed below. As you can see, we had a lot of peas and tomatoes!

I don't think I'm going to do such a detailed catalog this year, but I will tell you that so far, I've harvested several radishes, some baby lettuce, 2 bunches of rhubarb,2 bunches of chives, several onions, and sprigs here and there of dill, oregano, mint, and lemon balm.

I'm also really happy to have found a source for local organic grains. I picked up my first order tonight from Small World Bakery at the South Wedge Farmers' Market .

I love market/garden season!
