Last week the harvests featured the last of the Romanesco broccoli...
Definitely the best looking head of the four that I harvested this season.
And the first of the Couve Tronchuda, or Portuguese Cabbage. This was the thinnings of the winter sown plants.
I used some of the previously harvested Romanesco in a Thai inspired coconut curry that also included snow peas from the freezer, cubes of the big Marina di Chioggia squash that I harvested last fall, plus a generous amount of cilantro from the garden. The Couve Tronchuda went into another version my new favorite celery root and farro soup. The Couve Tronchuda is tender enough to be added to the soup directly at the end of the cooking. I shredded the leaves finely to insure that they would cook quickly.
The harvest totals for the week were:
Golden Corn Salad - 2.25 oz.
Portuguese Dairyman's kale - 10 oz.
Couve Tronchuda - 12 oz.
Romanesco broccoli - 3 lb., 8 oz.
The total for the week was - 5 lb., .25 oz.
The totals for the year are - 13 lb., 12 oz.
