Today is an exciting day.  Today we are going to eat our first meal from the garden.  I suppose 'meal' is a little misleading.  We picked 1 cup of spinach, not enough for a salad, but maybe I'll add it to our lettuce.  These things make me so happy.  It's a landmark day in our summer.

Here is our new garden.  This one we planted on May 11th.  We covered it with plastic and made a nice little green house to protect it from the frosts that we've had since then.  I think next year we could start earlier.

Nothing else is even close to ready yet,  so it's lots of spinach for now.  If you're like me and will only be eating spinach for the next month check out this website for important info on spinach.
