Lunch: Spring Potager mix of Greens

Lunch preparations, below, at a jobsite yesterday.


Lettuces, violets, arugula, lemon balm, mint, 4 types of heirloom radishes, chives & vinaigrette.  Sour dough French batard bread with balsamic vinegar for dipping, cheese, finished off with tiny fresh mint infused sugar cookies.

If I could bottle the fragrance of this fresh cut spring salad every bottle would sell.  More, the salad must be made into a sorbet.  A piquantly oddly fabulously perfect idea.
.
Deeper, what did spring salads of centuries ago taste like with soil enriched from livestock not chemicals?  Her soil is 5 years organic, from when she bought her century old farm.

That's a great looking lawn. I love the Chinese snowballs look! Your lawn looks so green, I haven't needed to use my outdoor sprinkler system yet, this spring has been so wet.
