Back home, much closer to sea level, I caught up on the harvests but only managed to take one photograph of a couple of extra large scallions and the first edible Persian cucumber (the first ones became overgrown in my absence so I gave them to the chickens).
The cucumber was sliced very thinly and incorporated into a salad with some of the bolting lettuce (still sweet but perhaps the soak in ice water helped), and the scallions which I grilled and chopped, along with a grilled peach and nectarine, and some smoked local wild salmon.
I also harvested a number of zucchini (thank goodness none of them turned into boats in my absence) and used a bunch of them to prepare one of my husband's favorite zucchini preparations - Zucchini in Agrodolce. We had that along with some deviled eggs my way - with chopped capers, dijon mustard, olive oil, and lemon juice, with a sprinkle of ground espelette pepper. That along with some melon and prosciutto was dinner on Saturday.
The capers keep trickling in, the total harvest is up to 2.7 pounds of buds so far. I hope to be able to bring in 3 pounds of capers this year and then I'll let the plants blossom and set some berries so that I can collect some fresh seeds to share.
Here's the harvest totals for the past week:
Rolande filet beans - 6.6 oz.
Apollo broccoli - 5.6 oz.
Capers - 2.6 oz.
Green Fingers Persian cucumber - 2.5 oz.
Sweetie Baby romaine (definitely not a baby anymore) - 1 lb., 5.2 oz
Parade Scallions - 5.9 oz.
Da Fiore Zucchini - 1 lb., 6.5 oz.
The total harvests for the week came to - 4 lb., 2.9 oz.
Which brings the yearly total up to - 82 lb., 15.2 oz.
