Of peas and spinach and crunchy good things


Not into the pool - just yet - but it's OK to head for the back yard and start planting. It's time for peas, lettuces of all kinds, greens like spinach and collards, beets, cabbage, broccoli and bok choy, which is a good bit of stuff to get going on. I bought some spicy radish shoots at a farmers market on Saturday and am thinking they'd be a wonderful new crop to try this year.

I've got some spinach in already, and some cabbage starts. More this weekend, including some Landreth seeds for Malabar spinach, which climbs and isn't a true spinach. (But the leaves taste like it when cooked.)
