Plants, animals, and people living in Coastal North Carolina are influenced by large, shallow bodies of water, called "Sounds." The Sound's daily influence can be a challenge or a gift. The word "sound" also means "in good condition; not damaged, injured, or diseased." Sound Harvest and Garden will try to reflect both those meanings, as I aim for sound vegetables, herbs, chickens, eggs, and ornamentals, all from my home by Core Sound.

Finally! I have been watching and waiting for a mixed greens salad from the garden, but our late, cold, gray spring was holding everything back. Now, after a two inch rain and a few slightly warmer days, the spinach, arugula, chard, and four kinds of lettuce have jumped up, and I finally could make and eat this beauty.
It has been almost painful waiting for spring to get here. I don't want to be cold any longer. Now I know those of you further north may have no patience with my complaints about weather in the 50s, but I am weak, and I want to go out in the boat.
