Okay, I’m a little late for Harvest Monday. But Harvest Tuesday sounds just as good, no?
Not much new to report in the way of new edibles this week. I’m still harvesting salad greens by the bucketful (well, bowl full, at least): endive, various lettuces, beet greens, radishes.
We’ve also been eating a lot of sugar snap peas, broccoli raab, and steamed beet thinnings (those seedlings pulled to make room for others to grow). Broccoli raab tastes just like broccoli but – bonus! – it is ready much sooner because you don’t have to wait for a big head to form (it produces multiple little heads).
The ‘Sieglinde’ potatoes are flowering, which means I can basically start harvesting baby potatoes any day – yay!
What are you harvesting now?
You can see what others are harvesting on Harvest Mondays, hosted by Daphne’s Dandelions.
That radish looks especially good! I’ll be harvesting salad greens in the next few days. Hopefully potatoes not to far after that.
Earlier I was harvesting lettuce by the bucket full. Now I’m down to the bowlful. Soon it will be all gone.
Harvest Tuesday sounds good to me. Enjoy those lush greens, taste so much better than shop bought.
Ok, I know they’re just “beet thinnings”, but I was so excited to see actual beet root attached to my greens the other day! They count as beets to me :)!
We’re also eating young favas, lots of peas, garlic scapes, and lots of greens too. The tomatoes have some flowers here and there, and the potatoes are going crazy. Just a few flowers though, but any day now… And I’m excited to see the zucchini, bean, and dill sprouts. Now I just have to get my head around starting the winter crop…
I’m harvesting lettuce and bok choy that, thanks to a kind friend’s advice, are remarkably free of slug bites!

Laura – Oh, those greens are going to taste so good! The radish from the Easter Egg mix; I think they’re lovely, but I’m wondering what to do with them beyond chopping into salads. Any thoughts?
Daphne – so sad! But that must mean the real summer crops are here. :)
Mangocheeks – they do, don’t they? I can’t get enough.
Toni – They definitely count! Hurray! Oh, but you’re right – time to start planning for the winter garden. Ugh.
Emma – you’re welcome :) Glad you’re getting a good harvest.
That harvest looks quite good! A yummy salad!
