Lots of Life in the Veggie Bed!

This is a fairly large bed and it is starting to fill up with all kinds of lettuces, arugula, radishes, (both seeded ones and volunteers), spinach and that lovely herbal space hog, borage! That full green strip to the right is the arugula and the radishes are everywhere! They are such fast growers and delicious when picked at the right time. The Herbal Husband sometimes thinks bigger is better! Not when it comes to picking radishes. I have to convince him every year! So hope your spring crops are coming along!

It is always so exciting this time of year. Every time the Herbal Husband says he isn't going to plant lettuce any more, we have a wonderful salad with all of the different lettuces, spinach and arugula. He then changes his mind! Thankfully!
