We picked the remaining garlic. The four on the right are German White, and the other 10 are Music. Not much difference dirty like this; maybe they'll be distinguishable when cured and cleaned.
Garlic is easy! I never realized it before. Step by step instructions:
- Plant 24 cloves in October.
- Do nothing.
- Cut 24 scapes in June. Enjoy.
- Pull 24 bulbs in July. Celebrate.
Okay, maybe "do nothing" includes a little weeding/fertilizing.
We got the first flush of "Carson" wax beans. Using up the 16 remaining seeds, maybe 13 survived. But they are productive.
Also the first major picking of seedless red raspberries (looking yellow in the photograph), and blueberries.
We are sharing the berries with the critters. The netting over the blueberry bushes is keeping out the birds, but the chipmunks just bull through.
We're still picking lettuce, snow and snap peas, carrots, and chard.
The peas and spring lettuce are getting tired, but the "summer crisp" lettuce is just getting going, so many more salads are in the forecast.
That's all for this week. Thanks for reading! There will be no post next week. The Kitchen Goddess and I are leaving for a "business incentive" trip to a location I am not permitted to disclose at this time. Very mysterious. TKG's mom will be watching the "farm" and cat, being paid in produce.
Thanks to Dave at Our Happy Acres for hosting Harvest Monday.
