Spring harvest and garden friends

"New" potatoes, "old" spinach - all so good!
spring harvest

(How do you like my makeshift spring cornucopia cobbled together from a cobalt blue plastic mixing bowl, a Fiestaware rice bowl, and a tea towel?)

Sure, there's a few holes and yellow spots in the spinach, but it tastes so fresh and sweet, and once it's sautéed up with garlic, no one will see the holes.

Yesterday, I found this little guy, licking dew off chard leaves and eating bugs.  Keep up the good work, little buddy!  I'll be sure to wash off the lizard spit.
