Spring greens

It's hard to beat fresh spinach, cabbage, arugula, mache (corn salad), and lettuce straight from the garden.

Mache (corn salad)
Mache is a treat; the leaves never get very big (for me), even the so-called large-leaved varieties, but boy, are they tasty. These plants were especially robust.

Ditto with fresh arugula. This time of year, the hotness hasn't developed, and the delicious nuttiness is perfect. Yum. And the young freshly harvested cabbage -- nothing like a grocery-store cabbage, actually.

Do I sound like I enjoy salads and vegetables? I do, certainly. They're definitely tasty, with or without a nice vinaigrette!

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
