It's Harvest Monday again, join the fun at Daphne's Dandelions. Show us what you've got! Here's what I harvested this week. First, a big bunch of amaranth leaves. This bunch was wilted in olive oil with a bit of bacon and chopped garlic and served as a side dish. Leftovers were scrambled with a couple of eggs.
Next, the first ripe Marconi Purple sweet peppers, a few cherry tomatoes (Isis Candy, Galinas, Black), a Giantesque tomato, Pimento de Padron peppers, basil, and zucchini (of course). The tomatoes, sweet peppers, and basil went into a Tomato and Bread Salad.
And then Piracicaba broccoli shoots, more zucchini, the first Christmas Bell pepper, one little purple tomatillo, more Pimento de Padrons, cherry tomatoes, and a couple of Black Sea Man Tomatoes. It's interesting how the Black Sea Man tomatoes are slightly different colors, off the same plant. That's my very first Christmas Bell pepper (C. baccatum) ever, it's very sweet and fruity with just a hint of spice, I really liked it. The plant has a lot of pods on it!
Other than what's in the photos I harvested more basil, zucchini, and a few tomatillos as they fell off the plants.
