It's a harvest and it looks beautiful. Plus, you must still be recuperating from the strawberries. The rest will come.

Thanks for the encouragement johanna!
I'm no disappointed with my harvest at all. It's my first year with a garden and any edibles that come out of it are great and make me smile!
You are correct, I am definitely recovering from the strawberry preservation process. It was a time consuming, delicious task!

The greens look great Fred!

A little harvest is better than none, right?

Mint is used in a lot of southeast Asian recipes. I should really harvest what we have invading our lawn instead of just ripping them out.

I'm sure you will get a bigger harvest as time goes on. I've never thought of premixing the mint with vodka. That would really get the flavor out.
