|Round Red Turnips|
It's a good thing I cleared out the turnips, you can see that some critter was starting to tunnel through some of the roots. I'm not sure what the pest is or what to do about it, but fortunately it had found only a few roots.

|Robin Hood and Extra Precoce Violetto favas|
|Batavia Broccoli side shoots|
I got side shoots from one of the Batavia broccoli plants and main heads from the Apollo brokali plants.
I pulled a clump of green Zebrune shallots which was all the extra plants that I didn't have room for at planting time, rather than tossing them out I just bunched them together and plopped them in one spot. I ended up with 1.5 pounds of green shallots, most of which I used to make another version of a pudding soufflé. I may be snitching more green shallots from the main planting, they are very aromatic and delicious.

|Red Butter Romaine lettuce|
The spring lettuces are getting to be huge and I can't keep up with the harvests. Here's a big Red Butter Romaine. I need to figure out a way to turn a lot of lettuce into a little bit of something, soup maybe?
I had one harvest earlier in the week when I didn't have time to do a photo shoot, so I don't have any photos of a big bunch of Mizunarubasoi and some more radishes.
