Here's another Harvest Monday update from Eight Gate Farm. With a big push this week, the gardens are almost completely planted. All the peppers, eggplants, cucumbers, zucchini, winter squash, and melons were set out. Oh, and two types of basil (Thai and Genovese). I am still planning to put in another crop of sweet corn in mid-June, but that's all that remains.
For harvests, a white-stemmed variety of bok choi, called Asian Delight, was taken. These went right away into a really nice beef stir-fry.

The Kitchen Goddess picked chive flowers and a few sprigs of tarragon to make flavored vinegar. For some reason we were out of white vinegar, so she used apple cider vinegar.

In non-harvest tidbits, the garlic is looking really strong this year, and I have high hopes.
