First harvest 2012!
It is getting warm and starting to feel like summer here in charm city. The early girl bush tomato is starting to flower and there are a few teeny tiny tomatoes. The sugar snap peas are also doing really well with healthy bushy leaves and greenish-white flowers. It looks like I will be harvesting some peas very soon! Can't wait!

For the first harvest of 2012, I got some pak choy and baby kale. I also harvested some snap pea leaves - some shoots, but mostly leaves.
Harvest #1 2012!!
I made a quick stir fry with garlic and oyster sauce. Everything was delicious, but I think I liked the flavor of the snap pea leaves the best. I will try to grow more snap peas this fall, since it will take A LOT of snap pea leaves to create one dish.
