I've been using up the extra onions that I planted close and deep for spring onions. You can see that they are starting to form bulbs and the main onion plantings are bulbing as well. I keep thinning out the fennel as well.

The fava harvest is hitting its peak. This is one of the few veggies that my husband will help me to process. He loves favas enough that when I threatened to stop growing them because they require so much work he volunteered to help, and he has kept his promise, so we continue to feast on homegrown favas.

I think it's fortuitous that the lettuce and spinach finished when they did because we have a heat wave coming this week, the highs are forecast to be in the high 80º F to low 90º F range this week. I think I'll be harvesting a fair amount of the romaine lettuce this week, it will probably keep better in the fridge than in the garden.
Here's the harvests for the past week:
Capers - 7.2 oz.
Extra Precoce Violetto fava beans - 13 lb., 9.2 oz.
Romanesco fennel - 1 lb., 6.3 oz.
Rhapsody butterhead lettuce - 2 lb., 7.3 oz.
Spring onions - 3 lb., 3.1oz.
Monstreux d'Viroflay spinach - 3 lb., 2.2 oz.
Summer Perfection spinach - 1 lb., 7.1 oz.
The total harvests for the past week were - 25 lb., 14.4 oz. (11.75 kg.)
Which brings the total harvests for 2014 up to - 125 lb., 8.4 oz. (56.9 kg.)
