Our First Harvest

It isn't much but there's a lot more to come. A few carrots are breaking the surface, the cherry tomatoes are starting to rippen and the lettuce is everywhere. However, we failed to weed for two weeks and the switch grass moved in with stunning speed.

If we decide to do this again next year, I'm going to sink some 2x12's on end all around the outside edge of our plot. The roots on the switch grass don't run very deep. So, a 2x12 should keep it out. Then we'll cover the plot with black plastic after we pick everything to kill off the grass and weeds. Hopefully, that'll help us out for the next season.

In the meantime, anyone have any good recipes?

Your are one scary broad Murf. Could you plant some squash next year. It will make for more interesting photos of your produce.
