Welcome to another Harvest Monday update from Eight Gate Farm. The weather has warmed, and the produce is finally starting to roll in. We had several new harvests this week.
First up is peas. We got three generous pickings of this variety, Super Sugar Snap. It is productive and resistant to powdery mildew. But the vines get very tall!

The snow pea "Avalanche" came in a few days later. This variety has much shorter vines, but I still trellis them.

I cut the first head of iceberg lettuce. I love iceberg despite it not being fashionable in the culinary world.
