Monday Harvest Totals 8/10

Here's a summary of what I've harvested over the past week. You can see what other gardeners have harvested at Daphne's Dandelions.

It seems like spring in that I've been eating lettuce all week. My second plantings of romaine and mesclun are coming into their own and so I had three salads this week, for a total harvest of 8 oz. of lettuce and greens.

We cut back the Swiss Chard this week to harvest about another 12 oz. for Swiss Chard Risotto. It will take a bit for it to recover. As usual, I forgot to photograph the Swiss Chard.

I harvested 9 oz of blue lake green beans and my first pickling cucumber (3.5 oz). The green beans became dilly beans and the cucumber went into bread & butter pickles.
A second harvest of 8 oz Romano Beans went into a curry dish. I didn't remember to photograph them until they were chopped and in with some of the other vegetables. The Romanos seem to be producing more than the Blue Lake.
Here is a quick view of the two beds. ( I really need to pull the peas!)

Here are a few things I'm looking forward to harvesting in the next week.

Your garden overview is looking great. I wish I kept sowing lettuce this summer. Its been so cool it would have done really well as yours did. I like your idea for swiss chard risotto, I will be giving the a try. I made pea risotto this spring and it was excellent.
