The garden was watered thoroughly by rain on Wednesday. Hot temperatures in the 80s and 90s were predicted beginning Thursday and into the weekend. I ventured out early Thursday morning to harvest all the spinach and kale I could before the hot temperatures turned them bitter or caused them to bolt.
The morning air was thick with moisture. A heavy layer of misty fog blanketed the ground and swirled around the woods trying to escape the rays of sunlight that were beginning to filter through. You could feel that the day was going to be hot and humid.

This harvest resulted in one 1-gallon zipper bag of spinach and three 1-gallon bags of kale in the refrigerator.
Be sure to visit Daphne’s Dandelions to see what others are harvesting this week.
