 h1. Dear readers,

 Amateur gardener that I am, I always appreciate the sound advice Caroline Lewis offers in her [/mix/dinnerguest?author=15197 "posts"] on the Dinner Guest blog. Caroline, proprietor of Verdura Culinary Gardens, here in Portland, understands just what those of us who grow vegetables in small spaces need to know.

 This week, she gives suggestions for harvesting late-spring and early summer crops, including peas, lettuce, broccoli, kale, chard, and root vegetables. I was surprised and delighted to learn that we could cut our chard plants to about three inches — and they'll grow back!

 Because she's a trained chef as well as a green thumb, Caroline sometimes slips us a recipe. Her [/user/Verdura+Caroline/recipes/verdurarecipes/earlyspringsoupeaupistou "Soupe au Pistou,"] although created to take advantage of early-spring vegetables, is a versatile dish; read her related blog post for mid-summer soup ideas. 

 Finally, two other posts of Caroline's seem especially timely now: one on growing tomatoes and another on growing culinary herbs — important information for those hungering for a home-grown Caprese Salad.
