As seen in the photo above, a few days ago, I harvested my first large bunch of epazote; I also gathered the first thinning of basil. From my new 2022 seed, I am still getting nice handfuls of “Little Marvel” peas, and I just picked the last of the purple radishes.

I always sow a large number of cloves, so my crop will last for several months, foreseeing any vicissitudes.
I also decided to harvest all the shallots that were left in the ground from last fall, since they were getting trampled by weeds and squirrels:
