We started the week with more radishes and lettuce/mesclun mix:
The tatsoi planted on April 15 has been growing slowly. This particular bed is getting less and less sunlight over the years as trees are shading it. However one plant decided it was time to bolt anyway, so I picked it. It was just enough to augment a delicious stir-fry that night.
The Kitchen Goddess made another batch of chive flower & tarragon vinegar; just in time, too, since we were running out. It has such a lovely floral/herbal fragrance, and is so pretty to look at.
And ending the week, more lettuce and a big haul of radishes.
That's all for this week. Thanks for reading, and good luck with your harvests.
Sorry to hear about your crappy weather. Your lettuces and radishes look great through. Oh and chive blossoms, I keep forgetting to sow more chives, my patch has died out or been consumed by gophers, probably gophers.ReplyDelete
Nice batch of radishes. Mine got in late and are still germinating. The chive vinegar is a good idea and I may snatch some of the blossoms going wild in the untended plots in the garden.Delete
Gophers, one thing we do not have here. Problems enough with voles and chipmunks.Delete
Lovely harvests! That chive flower & tarragon vinegar looks so pretty, what do you use it for?ReplyDelete
We use it for everything!Delete
Your harvests look so fresh & lovely! I've had bolting issues in my garden too - all these ups and downs are simply too much for some plants.ReplyDelete
Thanks Margaret. I'm comparing my results to those giant tatsois you showed last year, and coming up pretty short!Delete
Beautiful vinegar! I forgot to make any this year. My tatsoi is bolting too, as is my pac choi. I hope your weather settles down soon!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Dave. The weather still looks unsettled. Grr.Delete
That vinegar really does look pretty. I started a new chive patch this year so it is far from flowering at this point.ReplyDelete
Very nice radishes!
Thanks Susie. Next year you will have chive flowers aplenty.Delete
You're still getting very spring-y weather. And that's a ton of lettuce and radishes. The chive vinegar sounds delicious.ReplyDelete
It's 96 degrees today, and it looks like all the little pak choy has decided to bolt even the ones still in their six-pack.
Yow, 96! We rarely get days like that up here. It's my first time growing tatsoi so I don't know what to expect.Delete
