The harvests keep trickling in and I'm loving each fresh bite. The Lacinato kale is starting to bolt but the leaves that remain are still good and soon I'll be harvesting the shoots. The celery is tolerating a lot of cut-and-come-again harvests. And I've been harvesting a "head" of Romanesco each week. Most of the Romanesco plants didn't form proper tight heads, they are more like a bunch of shoots, but they are still tasty. This basketful of goodies went into a pot of soup.
I've been harvesting a fair amount of parsley like this, but that's going to come to an end soon, not because it's bolting but because the birds and a gopher are attacking my plants.
I get a handful of snow peas every few days, and a couple of carrots now and then, plus all that crunchy celery. All good stuff to put into my lunch salads.
I put out a few pea plants for shoots recently and here's the first trimmings. And a few more snow peas. And more celery...
The weather was been making a half-hearted attempt at "winter" last week, but we are still falling far short of normal rain amounts and the temperatures in general are pretty pleasant.
Here's the harvests for the past week:
Di Ciccio broccoli - 10.9 oz. (almost done)
Circus Circus carrots - 3.1 oz.
Dorato di Asti celery - 1 lb.
Lacinato kale - 5.3 oz.
Oregon Sugar Pod II snow peas - 2.9 oz.
Snow pea shoots (Dou Miao) - .2 oz.
Romanesco - 2 lb., 8.2 oz.
The total harvests for the past week came to - 4 lb., 14.6 oz. (2.23 kg.)
Which pushes the total harvests for 2014 up to - 21 lb., 14.5 oz. (9.94 kg.)
