Harvest Monday - March 29, 2010
Here's the newest addition to the harvests this year, Green Butterhead lettuce and young Mizuna. I made a simple salad with these that I dressed with my husband's favorite dressing of lemon juice, dijon mustard, honey, olive oil, salt and pepper (and a touch of truffle oil). I included some roasted beets on the side, dressed with the same dressing, and sprinkled some toasted sliced almonds over all.
It was a busy week with house guests from Wednesday through Sunday so I didn't get around to harvesting anything else. I did get a few nice shots from our drive down the Big Sur coast so perhaps I'll post of few of those later.
So, the harvest totals for last week:
Mizuna - 1.5 oz.
Butterhead lettuce - 5 oz.
Noga Romaine lettuce - 1.25 oz.
Cimarron Romain lettuce - .5 oz.
Total for the week - 8.25 oz.
Eggs this week - 11
