First salad of the season

A little late, I know; somehow we kept forgetting we had an enthusiastic crop of mixed greens and spinach in the garden.

The tomatoes are not ours, not yet. We have one brave plant, which came back from a near-devastating nomming (shakes fist at squirrels) and is now recuperating nicely, but doesn't yet have flowers. The above are called candy strawberry tomatoes and yes, they're very sweet. Perhaps too sweet.

This was our first attempt at growing salad greens, and I realized I should have thinned out the rows a little; better to have fewer leaves growing vigorously than many leaves fighting for space. But this is a (fun, delicious) learning process, and the next crop will be better.
