First “Harvest” of the Year

It was a small harvest, but it was the first of the year.  A single radish.  It was more a status check than anything else.  Almost Mature Radish

This is the Cherry Belle variety of radish.  It tasted fine, not hot or woody.  The lettuce in the garden has gotten bitter from the extra warm spring.  I have more reaching a good size now and hope it will be better.  We did get a enough new leafs of lettuce for 4 salads.  So all is good.

I had to cover up some of the plants tonight with a frost cover.  Lows are expected in the upper 30’s, but no need to take a chance with the summer vegetables.  Hopefully, this will be the last time I need to get the frost cloth out.   The rest of the tomatoes are going out over the weekend, and I plan on building at least one more 4×4 bed this year.
