Harvest Monday 6/27/11

Here are photos of this past week’s harvests.
Monday- Strawberries

Tuesday- Mushrooms from my Back to the Roots kit.

Wednesday- Garlic Scapes, the first Piracicaba Broccoli, a few shell peas, & more strawberries.

Thursday- Lettuce, strawberries & snowpeas, with one lone radish

Saturday- Strawberries and Rhubarb

which became two strawberry rhubarb pies.

I think it’s safe to say that the strawberries are in season. We also made a Strawberry pie earlier in the week.
Here are this week’s totals for the larger harvest items.
Strawberries: 4 lbs 5 oz
Rhubarb: 13 oz
Garlic Scapes: 9 oz
Mushrooms: 3 oz
Lettuce: 2 oz

This week’s harvest: 5.18 lbs
Harvests so far this year: 17 lbs
Last year at this time we’d only harvested 9 lbs. We’re hoping the rest of the harvests will continue to do better as well.

You can see other gardener’s harvests at Daphne’s Dandelions.

    I don’t think a harvest week can get much better than that…. lots of sweet juicy strawberries, a little lettuce for a salad, some veggies for a great stir fry, some more strawberries and rhubarb too, and MUSHROOMS! Good eating at your place this week. 😀

    The mushrooms look like they came from outerspace, but the strawberries look divine!

    Whoohoo the mushrooms came in. With the broccoli and garlic scapes, I’m starting to crave a stir fry. And all those strawberries. I can’t wait until next year when I get June strawberries.

    Oh my…that pie looks heavenly! I haven’t had strawberry rhubarb pie in years. I am so liking that mushroom kit. What are your thoughts on it so far?

  8. Jody says:

    You have a very nice harvest. We’ve never grown garlic, but those scapes look very tempting. I don’t think I’ve had strawberry rhubarb pie since my grandmother made it more than 20 years ago. It looks delicious!
