The celery and celeriac were also starting to bolt so I harvested all of those. These also store well in the fridge if most of the leaves are removed.

The Rishad cress and Speedy arugula were going the same route as the lettuces and celery so I cut them down. These don't keep all that well so I've been using them up first in my nearly daily lunch salads.
It was past time to give the Summer Perfection spinach a haircut, though the plants hadn't actually sent up up flower stalks yet it seems like they are on the verge of doing so. I used some of the spinach paired with some Petaluma Gold Rush beans and some cubes of leftover pork chops. We got double duty from that dish, first as a warming stew and then mashed up and used as a filling in warm whole wheat tortillas with cheese and shredded lettuce.

I've harvested most of the winter sowing of radishes also. They are almost all gone now. Radishes also keep well if their leaves are removed so I'm nursing them along, slicing up 2 or 3 to put in my salads.

There's a few winter veggies left in the garden but not for long and the veggies that I sowed in late January before I left for vacation were stunted by the unexpected dry weather so I pulled them out and started over, so I may have a gap in the harvests while I wait for the March sown veggies to mature.
