We ate our first homegrown salad yesterday- arugula, cesar and simpson lettuce out of the garden with a little shredded carrot, raisins and sesame seed sprinkled in. Taste of spring. The lettuce I direct-sowed is coming up now.
So are tons of volunteer seedlings- probably from the compost. It looks mostly like tomatoes- I would grow some out but not sure of what I'd get, and I don't have space to experiment like that! But it's definitely an assurance that I can save my own tomato seed when I want (unless I'd get hybrids from the plants crossing? must look that up).
Also seem to be quite a few cosmos volunteers. These I'm going to let grow a bit and then move them. See if I get flowers.
