Harvest Monday - March 8, 2010
The Golden Chard is growing by leaps and bounds lately. I harvested that nice bunch on Sunday. The leafy parts were sauteed in olive oil with green garlic and currants and then topped with toasted sliced almonds and a splash of sherry vinegar. I saved the stems and tonight I'm going to make a gratin with them.
That was the highlight of the harvests during the past week. Here's the totals:
Green Garlic - 2.25 oz.
Olive Leaf Rapini - 12.75 oz.
Frisee thinnings - 7.25 oz.
Butterhead Lettuce thinnings - .5 oz.
Piracicaba broccoli - 3.25 oz.
Golden Chard - 1 lb., 3.5 oz.
Total for the week - 2 lb., 13.5 oz.
Total for the year - 31 lb., 1 oz.
Eggs for the week 10
And there were a few beets that I picked and neglected to weigh, oh well!
Harvest Mondays are hosted by Daphne on her blog Daphne's Dandelions. Why don't you head on over there and show us what you've been harvesting lately!
