First (okay second) Produce of the Season

In our cold frame, we grew lettuce, spinach, cilantro, carrots and chard. We planted it in early December and it started to come up in March. I didn’t think the carrots would come up but they sprouted and are growing fast.

Tonight we had taco salads with our lettuce and spinach. Yesterday, I cut some cilantro for the rest of my mom’s enchilada casserole so really, that was the first produce of the season, but I was so excited that I forgot to take a picture.


The salad was delicious and I really like the both the lettuce and spinach. The lettuce is buttercrunch which I like so much better than black-seeded simpson–although I did plant some to mix in with other varieties. The simpson is too bitter whereas the crunch is the perfect mix of iceberg and romaine flavors. YUM!
