First up is a time we celebrate here, the first artichokes!
|Imperial Star artichokes|
|Marengo softneck garlic|
Another first harvest was a head of Fiesta broccoli.
|Alaska and Blue Podded peas for drying|
|L: Super Sugar Snap, R: Blizzard and Mammoth Melting Sugar|
|Scarlet Nantes carrots|
And more bolting onions for fresh use.
Lastly, I can't resist showing off a bit with a "harvest" from the sea. We took a day off from gardening on Sunday and went striped bass fishing off the coast of Newburyport, Massachusetts (just 45 minutes from here). It was a great day! "Stripers" are an amazing fish to catch, and eat! To be legally harvested they have to be 28" in length, and these range from that to over 30".
That's all for this week. Thanks for reading, and thanks as always to Dave at Our Happy Acres for hosting Harvest Monday.
