The first edibles – May 16, 2015

A couple days ago, we had our first salad from the garden, supplemented by a handful of spinach leaves from the grocery-store clamshell. I planted this bed back in a warm spell in March, choosing cold-tolerant varieties and figuring I’d get something to eat as soon as the weather made it happen. More than six weeks later, I harvested the first spicy arugula, mizuna and kale leaves.

That first salad of the year always feels like such a major victory. What are the first things you eat out of the garden in the spring?
