Although I did harvest some kale and carrots in early 2010, that was really a product of the 2009 growing season. I’m anticipating that the 2010 harvest will begin a little later this month with radishes and salad greens. But, in the most technical sense, I got my first harvest of 2010 yesterday when I clipped a lot of herbs from my perennial herb garden. I got sprigs of sage and thyme and parsley, big bunches of chives, and a whole lot of mint. Mint, of course, is an invasive weed, so I can’t even take credit for planting it in my garden. But it’s certainly fun to battle against mint’s invasion by pulling out big handfuls and making mojitos with it.
