First Harvest

I pulled the first radishes out of the garden yesterday.  They were pretty small, but they were getting crowded, and it’s always nice to have those first fresh ones of spring.

Also got the green beans planted, just in time for the rain that’s falling today.  They’re mostly Blue Lake bush beans, which always do well, but we’re also trying some Contender this year.  The catalog really talked those up.

Things are growing fast now, including the weeds, so I pulled a bunch of those yesterday and gave them to the chickens.  They’re growing fast too; I’m going to have to get a chicken house built in a couple weeks so we can get them out of the garage.
