First Harvest of 2012

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

I harvested the last batch of the fall spinach and lettuce this week. I planted both of these in early September so I got my money's worth with these plantings. Both were starting to look a little gross, so I pulled what was left and now its time to replant. This brings my first harvest for 2012 to a little less than a pound. It will probably be a few months before I have any more harvests. I have got a couple of batches of peas in the ground that should be ready in mid to late March. I hope to plant a few things this weekend. I think I will start planting my lettuce in weekly phases because when you have 10 to 12 heads planted at the same time, the harvests are too much. I think it will be more efficient to harvest a little at a time.

Looks great! I did not get around to planting anything in the fall last year, except for some lettuce seedlings that are still alive, but still very small.

Thanks Cat. It will be my last harvest for a few months. I checked out your blog, I really like how your tabs at the top show only posts related to those labels. I might have to do that to my blog. Thanks for the idea.
