Inspired by Daphne's Dandelions, here is a Harvest Monday post. Last week was a slow week and we didn't harvest anything except a few leaves of lettuce here and there. Today I harvested a lot in order to empty some squares for Fall crops.
1.5 oz of lettuce and beet greens for a salad for lunch.
11 heads of garlic.
Here they are cleaned up. 6 heads were medium and 5 heads were small. Now they are hanging in the shed to dry.
12.25 oz of golden beets. The mystery here is that the first set I planted still look like seedlings. I left them in the ground and harvested these. There were three of a nice size and the rest were small.
13.25 oz of Purple Haze Carrots. Most of these were larger than I thought they'd be compared to the size of their foliage. Most were long and nice sized, a few were strangely squat.
I'm looking forward to harvesting tomatoes and zucchini but so far there are only green tomatoes and male squash blossoms.
