This is my first season gardening and I've had my
first harvest!  Nothing compared to George's bounty
but this week I picked radishes (red and purple),
lettuce, spinach and asparagus.  I planted a mesclun
lettuce mix type of seeds and they are growing
wonderfully. My mother in law couldn't believe the big
bag of lettuce came from my garden.  Now if it would
only rain here in DC (no rain in a month)

I bought some strawberry plants and put them in a
strawberry pot, sitting on my porch.  My daughter Emma
(age 4) and I have been watching the first big berry
get red.  I went out Sat morning and the berry was
gone.  I suspect a squirrel or bird. There are lots of
berries on the plants and I'm hoping we at least get a
couple of red ones.
