An Alameda Garden: First Salad

First Salad

I forgot to take a picture of it, but yesterday I was able to harvest enough of the mesclun and spinach to make salad for two. It was delicious with walnuts, feta cheese, dried cranberries and a simple dressing of olive oil and balsalmic vinegar. I meant to add some nasturtiums but I forgot.

I checked my postings to see when I planted the mesclun seeds, but it looks like I forgot to mention when I did it. To the best of my recollection, I planted them around May 18th, which means it was a month from seed-sowing to harvest. I want to keep track of that because I want to see if I can keep them growing year-round and I'll need to know how often I need to re-seed.


  1. Congratulations! The first harvest of the season is always the best. I am hoping for some zucchinis this week! If I am right, I'll have my sautéing pan ready to go.

    I see you are a Northern California gardener. I mostly garden in Southern California.
