The harvests continue to broaden each week. This week the new arrivals were red peppers, patty pan squash, swiss chard (finally!) , purple calabash tomatoes, and green beans. Here are photos of this week’s harvests.
Monday I returned from a weekend away and decided it was time to pick the garlic. I’ll weigh it when it finishes drying in a few weeks. I also picked the lasts of the sour cherries which became a cherry-peach pie this weekend. There was a large zucchini, many cucumber and peas waiting for me as well, with a few sungolds and one black prince tomato.
Thursday brought my first Purple Calabash tomato, the first green beans, lettuce, brococli, radishes & more snow peas.
Saturday I dug some more Irish Cobbler & Red Fingerling Potatoes. I also picked more lettuce, Jimmy Nardello sweet peppers, and the first Chocolate Bell pepper. Of course, more cucumber, peas, a few more beans and a tomato to top my burger.
Sunday I harvested the first of an asian green called Hon Tsai Tai. It went in a curry with the two more Jimmy Nardello sweet peppers and a Hungarian wax. I can’t say that I tasted the greens, so we’ll have to try them in something else.
The big harvests this week were cucumbers. I need to make pickles today. Peas also continue to come in. We’ve got some in the refrigerator that really need to be frozen.
