salads from the garden

one of the things we love about our new house is the large, sunny front yard.
the perfect spot for a vegetable garden!
mark is a natural born farmer, and we all profit from his green thumb.

we planted mid-spring, and have already begun harvesting:
basil, parsley, onions, radishes, swiss chard, lettuce, yellow squash, sweet peas, cucumbers, beans, oregano, and mint.

we've been having salads from the garden most everyday, and often as the main course.
i figure if i can come up with enough different ways to eat salad,
i'll never get tired of it.
