We had a number of first harvests this week. Leading off is the star of our gardens, the noble artichoke! Petite in size, it had great flavor, and we shared it equitably!
|Green Globe artichoke|
|Calima filet beans|
The first White Egg turnip.
One of the onions started bolting, so I pulled it.
|Immature Stuttgarter onion|
|Red Norland potatoes|
For a sampling of continuing harvests, here's a Yellowfin zucchini along with a Purple Top White Globe turnip and a Fiesta broccoli head.
Finally enough shishito peppers to indulge ourselves. This time, instead of grilling and sprinkling with sea salt, TKG made a soy-ginger sauce to drizzle over them after grilling. Wonderful!
The kohlrabi is getting bigger and bigger, but there's only a few left.
|Kolibri Purple F1|
And lastly a very decent picking of blueberries, 1 1/4 pounds.
That's it for this week. Maybe this coming week we will finally get tomatoes! Sure would be nice. Thanks for reading, and thanks as always to Dave at HappyAcres.blog for hosting Harvest Monday.
Very nice veggies, but it is the fruit I love!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful week!
Thank you Lea! The fruit is nice and doesn't require a lot of work.Delete
Your harvests look lovely! Our lettuce has all started bolting which is not surprising as we've had a couple of days that were over 100F (one was 105!). I'm growing Kennebec for the first time this year - it's always fun growing something new & I'm looking forward to give it a taste.ReplyDelete
Wow, you were a lot hotter than us! I'm sure you will like Kennebec potatoes. We miss you Margaret, please post soon!Delete
It was as hot at your place as it was here! The shishito pepper treatment sounds yummy. Soy and ginger go with lots of things, especially with sesame oil too. I'm getting hungry thinking about it!ReplyDelete
Yes, I think some sesame oil was involved. I thought you would have been hotter, given your normal weather!Delete
Isn't it nice when the harvests begin to roll in? Especially when the growing season is short. Hope your first frost is late this year.ReplyDelete
What a lovely colourful selection of fruit and veg you have had this week. Such a good time of the year!!ReplyDelete
