Harvest Monday: 8/3/09
I'm joining Daphne in her Harvest Monday posts, although I'm not weighing anything. I'm afraid that if I actually weighed all the zucchini that I'm harvesting (from only 2 plants) that I might never grow it again. Pictured above is one picking of Pimento de Padron peppers. I can't pick too many of those, they are absolutely delicious. Next up you can see one picking of zucchini (with one that got away), a serpent cucumber, and some Guindilla peppers.
And then there's a couple more zucchini and about half a pound of purple (not) tomatillos. The tomatillos were made into salsa with the guindillas which were too spicy to eat as a tapa. The salsa was really good on top of pan roasted halibut.
And then yet more zucchini (shared with shift mates at the Aquarium), more Padrons (all for me), some Piracicaba broccoli sprouts, and caper buds.
Not pictured this week were another handful of Padrons, a couple of Donkey Ears sweet peppers (picked green, sauteed and put on top of pizza), numerous sprigs of basil, some extremely aphidy kale (for the chickens) and a couple more zucchini...
Til next week... I gotta go pick the zucchini that should have been harvested yesterday.
