Harvest Monday - April 9, 2018

There was nothing new in the harvest basket last week.

Pink Lettucy Mustard produced more shoots

Pink Plume Celery harvests came to an end.

Like I said, Pink Lettucy kept it up. And Frieda Worlds snow peas gave another but smaller harvest of pods.

And that was it for the week.

Oh wait, I forgot because I didn't photograph it because it was ugly, one more head of Red Iceberg lettuce came in from the garden. It was too loose and aphidy to use to make a classic wedge salad but it cleaned up well enough to include in a chopped salad that also featured the Pink Plume celery and sliced Frieda Worlds snow peas which I dressed with homemade blue cheese dressing.

We are still feasting on vegetables from previous harvests. I made a big pot of soup that featured favas, green beans, roasted peppers and tomato puree from the freezer, plus dried fermented mustard greens from the pantry, along with carrots from the fridge and some other veggies from the farmer's market. And I had to cut into another big Terremoto squash that had developed a soft spot. The first quarter of the squash went into a Panade and more of it is sitting on the counter fermenting.

Harvest Monday is hosted by Dave on his blog Our Happy Acres, head on over there to see what other garden bloggers have been harvesting lately.


  1. We actually managed to harvest a few things this week but our harvests are quickly being exhausted.

  2. It's all about the stores for us - still lots in the freezer and cold cellar, thank goodness, as this year we will be making good use of that for a while still.

    I've just seeded my lettuce (I'm so looking forward to some fresh greens!) but it's anyone's guess when I'll be able to get it outside - it's getting crowded under the grow lights!

  3. I'm looking forward to planting my Pink Lettucy soon. It looks a bit like the Vivid Choi which I have planted in the greenhouse. I doubt mine will be as productive as yours since it will turn hot about the time it's ready for cutting.

  4. Your snow peas and Pink mustard are amazingly productive. I always feel like I'm behind at this time of year in regards to seed starting. It'll be nice once things can start going in the ground.
