Yesterday afternoon I headed out to the vegetable garden to resume my long-neglected weeding tasks but got distracted (funny how easily that happens when one's supposed to be weeding) by what appeared to be baby sorrel. I'd seeded some sorrel in that area quite awhile ago and never saw any results and pretty much forgot about it. I tore off a tiny leaf and tasted it: yep, definitely sorrel--cool!
To me, sorrel tastes like a tangier, more lemony, more delicate version of baby spinach and is really good in an omelette with a little chevre or cream cheese.
I also harvested some beets, dinosaur kale, swiss chard, and more cartoon carrots. And although I harvested virtually all my lettuces before our recent hard freezes, the leaf lettuces I covered managed just fine.
That flat leaf parsley plant with the leaf lettuces is at least two feet by two feet. No complaints here!
