The star performer of late is definitely the Golden Corn Salad. I didn't take a photograph of any of my harvests for the past two weeks, but you can see some on my harvest post for February 18 and I wrote a post yesterday to spotlight the variety (joining Liz's Saturday Spotlight meme). I harvested about 2.25 pounds of it in the past two weeks! I've been eating a lot of salad lately.
I've also harvested a lot of chard lately.
Golden Chard and Flamingo Chard
It has been fun to cook them together. I cut the stems crosswise into about 1/2-inch pieces and cook them for a couple of minutes in a covered saute pan with just a bit of water, let them steam until crisp tender; then add the coarsely chopped leaves and wilt them. One harvest was used in my version of a recipe from Yotam Ottolenghi's book Plenty that features spiced chickpeas and a yogurt topping - delicious and beautiful with the bright yellow and pink chard stems. One thing that I love about the Flamingo chard is that the stems keep that bright pink color and the color doesn't bleed like the red stemmed varieties do. The other harvest was blanched in the same way and then sauteed with a garlic and anchovy soffrito spiked with lemon juice - another yum.
I've also harvested more...
Diamante Celery Root (Celeriac)
Dorato di Asti Celery
Lacinato Kale (bolting already)
Last night I used that harvest, along with bacon and onion to make a sort of hash that I served with very soft boiled eggs and Comte cheese.
So here's the harvests for the past two weeks:
Dorato di Asti celery - 1 lb., 8.1 oz.
Diamante celery root - 10.3 oz. (trimmed)
Flamingo chard - 1 lb., 6.7 oz.
Golden chard - 1 lb., 8.1 oz.
Golden Corn Salad - 2 lb., 3.6 oz.
Lacinato kale - 6.1 oz.
The total harvests for the past two weeks came to - 7 lb., 10.9 oz.
Which brings the total harvests for the year up to - 13 lb., 9.6 oz.
Harvest Monday is hosted by Daphne on her blog Daphne's Dandelions, head on over there to see what other garden bloggers have been harvesting lately.
