You ready for it? Are you sure?!? Here you go:
Approximately 4 oz of arugula from thinning the huge pot I just threw some seeds in about a month ago. Yes, I probably waited too long to do the thinning but it still tastes great if maybe a bit leggy. I probably need to throw some more in another pot (garden is still part of a construction zone).
The not harvested, but growing report: I've also got a ridiculous amount of sage. It was this small little plant that is now this huge bush! I have no idea what to do with it all except maybe give it to unsuspecting friends. A little sage goes a long way and one can only eat so many Sage Shortbread cookies. Also? My chives are freaking rockstars. As is, unfortunately, my lemon balm. Anyone want some? It went from this little plant in a 3" pot to practically a bush in less than 12 months. And, finally, my greek mountain oregano. I had hope of it surviving the winter, but when the snow melted it looked so....so....dead. Turns out, it was totally just sleeping! My 2 scrawny plants are getting bigger by the day. *sniff* They grow up so fast!
The kohlrabi and kale I started AGES ago are seriously puny still. I don't really understand why...it's been almost 2 months and they still only have 1 set of true leaves. I think I'm going to write them off as a failure this spring and try again in the fall (probably give them an earlier start then). The carrots I planted at the same time as the arugula look lovely (I thinned them out too but they haven't really developed big roots yet) unlike my failed attempt in the fall.
My strawberries, as far as I can see, look OK but they are also part of the construction zone and they may or may not have dirt piled on top of them. Or slugs eating all the berries. We shall see. I am seriously contemplating throwing down $30 for a good sized blueberry bush (well, $60 b/c I'd buy two). Somebody talk me down!!!
