Second Salad of the Season

Last night Eric and I enjoyed our second salad of the season from the Maryland Sled Dog Adventures' dog yard garden. The first salad of the season was enjoyed about a week ago but disappeared so quickly we didn't get any photos. Last night's salad was made from green leaf lettuce fresh from the garden, radishes (purchased not grown; we don't do well with root crops), blue cheese (alas, also purchased), croutons (purchased), and a light honey mustard vinaigrette (homemade).

The Romaine lettuce is still maturing

As you can see in the photos, while not quite ready for harvesting, the rest of the gardens are growing and coming along quite nicely. This seems to be the first season in a long time where we've had flowers and even small developing tomatoes on the tomato plants. This year, we have either flowers and/or small green tomatoes on all of the plants including the heirloom Brandywine, the hybrid Early Girl, and the container planted cherry tomato, Husky Red Cherry.

Allium is a new addition to our garden this season
