Just a quick post to show you what I have been harvesting from my garden these past few days. Look at those fresh greens in my basket! From left to right in the basket are a few leaves of baby China Choy Cabbage, several ribs and leaves of Bright Lights Swiss Chard, and a whole mess (1/2 lb) of mixed spicy mesclun and delicate baby lettuces. To the far left on the table next to the basket are a few more radishes.
The baby cabbage is tender enough to eat raw in a green salad with the mixed salad greens or cooked in a nice fresh stir fry meal over rice. The chard is best lightly cooked as in a stir fry or perhaps steamed. Also good over rice. The mixed salad greens are great right out of the garden, but I like to bring all my garden greens in to rinse and refresh them in a bowl of water then drain and store in the fridge to keep them fresh and crisp.
