Harvest Monday - February 22, 2010
The only thing new in the harvest lineup last week was some shoots from the red fennel. I noticed one shoot was starting to develop a flower stalk and the rest of them are quite crowded with multiple shoots from the crown of each plant so I cut the bolting shoot and did a bit of thinning. I cleaned them and put them in the refrigerator and when it came time to put together a pot of soup with some freshly harvested vegetables and leftover duck confit, I forgot to use them. They'll keep until I put together another pot of soup, which I make frequently at this time of year.
So here's the harvest totals for the week:
Red Fennel - 5 oz.
Olive Leaf Rapini - 1 lb., 5.5 oz.
Diamante Celery Root - 2 lb., 4.75 oz.
Romanesco Broccoli - 16 oz.
Garlic Shoots - 1 oz.
Chervil - .5 oz.
Fava leaves - 1.75 oz.
Golden Corn Salad - 2.75 l oz.
Cutting Celery - 1 oz.
Red *Scallion* - 8 oz.
Total Harvest for the week - 5 lb., 14.25 oz
Total For the year - 24 lb., 8.25 oz.
Eggs last week - 11
