It's not the first harvest of the year. That would be parsnips, which I dug up in January. This is the first harvest of a green vegetable. The spinach was planted last October. With the mild winter it has sized up earlier than normal. These four plants were removed to thin the row. There was enough to make a dish of spinach alfredo.
Since this was harvested the weather has turned very cold and will remain cold until Thursday. I probably won't get any more spinach for a week or two. To see what other gardeners are getting from their plots, head on over to Our Happy Acres and have a look.
