Harvest Monday - January 18, 2010
It's still slow in the garden now so there's not much to show for Harvest Monday. There's the carrot harvest shown above, from left to right Afghani Purple, Dhagestan White (some are yellowish), and Early Scarlet Horn. A few of them are rather good looking, and the rest are, well, only a gardener could love the look of them! All have been equally delicious. A few of them were used in open faced sandwiches of toasted country bread generously spread with hummus topped with grated carrot drizzled with a bit of good olive oil and sprinkled with roasted salted sunflower seeds. Some more went into a vegetable soup with extra chickpeas from the hummus. And a few are left in the fridge. The chickens got the tops. I've been weighing the carrots without the tops, I wonder if I should include those in the harvest also?
Here's the harvest totals for the past week:
Afghani Purple carrots - 7 oz.
Early Scarlet Horn carrots - 9 oz.
Daghestan White carrots - 6.25 oz.
Olive Leaf Rapini (trimmed) - 7.25 oz.
Cutting Celery - 2.75 oz.
Week total - 32.25 oz. or 2.02 pounds
Total to date - 6.34 pounds
