Micro-greens from the garden.

Today, I picked our first homegrown salad. A small one, admittedly, bulked out with some arugula I bought yesterday at the market in Lavelanet. The frilly leaves are frisée, the last-but-one head that resulted from some seedlings I planted back in November. The other leaves are bitter cress which I found growing under the rosemary bush. A small, tufted plant, its leaves have a mustard-y taste. Like many of the other wild things around here, I identified it from the invaluable Eyewitness Handbook to Herbs.
