Harvest Monday - 24 June 2019

Perhaps reflecting the generally cool conditions we've experienced, the garlic scapes were a little late this year. But it's very nice to get this bonus harvest from the plants. We cut these on Saturday, choosing the ones that had already curled on themselves.

And the remaining ones on Sunday.

Fashion trend: edible bracelets
We've downsized from two strawberry beds to one, and the remaining bed is on its last legs, but still gave us a nice picking.

Only one of the Tatsoi plants survived the spring, and it started bolting this week.

The salad mixes gave us several light cuttings like this, and almost all the radishes were harvested. Most never did size-up this year before trying to bolt.

Overall, not yet a lot to show for our gardening labors, but the warm weather will eventually get here. I personally can't wait. Thank you for reading, and please check out, the gracious host of Harvest Monday.

Harvest Monday - 17 June 2019

The cool, wet spring weather, even now as we approach summer, is trying my patience to say the least. Yet it seems to be the "new normal" around here. I've taken to delaying starting or sowing at least a week later. We have only been harvesting asparagus, finished now. But this week the first traditional spring crops began to be harvested.

We had several pickings of radishes and salad greens, to give us small but welcome salads.

And the Toy Choi, living up to its name, bolted while still small. We really enjoy this in Asian-inspired soups and stir-fries.

 That's all I have to show. Thanks for looking, and thanks to Dave at for hosting Harvest Monday.
