But the crops had to be picked. We got a first harvest of one of our favorites, artichokes.

|Cubanelle pepper and two shishito peppers
For continuing harvests, more blueberries. These are disappearing into our breakfast smoothies.
More "Yaya" carrots, including an extra-wonky one looking like a perverse lobster claw.
The last of the Iceberg lettuce.
More side shoots from the "Blue Wind" broccoli.
A few more pea pods.
And more cucumbers and zucchini.
More turnip greens. This is a variety called "Seven Top" that is bred for greens production, not roots.
Lastly, from the community garden plot for The Kitchen Goddess's mom, came fennel and summer squash.
Just in case you've never grown artichokes or have never seen the plants, here's what they look like. In our zone (5b), they won't survive the winter so we grow them as annuals.
That's it for this week. Thanks for reading, and thanks to Dave at HappyAcres.blog for hosting Harvest Monday.
