Harvesting Spring Vegetables

We have been harvesting Spring vegies now for about a month. The cool weather plants such as spinach, peas,several lettuce varieties like romaine, bibb, red leaf; chard, green onions and strawberries are all available in our gardens. When harvesting lettuces and spinach, use scissors to cut the outer leaves and leave the head to continue producing. On warmer days give these vegetables extra water and shade if possible. Some may grow a shoot from the top of the plant, this means it is ending its growing cycle or going to seed. By cutting the shoot off you may be able to extend the harvest.
