Harvest Monday 6/14/10

This was a week of more and more lettuce. I harvested 11.25 oz of lettuce. I slowly pulled my oak leaf lettuce to create room in the cold frame for starting fall seedlings of broccoli and cabbages.
We finished the first plant of radishes, 2.75 oz. The green onion isn't counted in my total because I bought green onions at the store back in late April and planted them like Annie's Granny does.

I also pulled my arugula which was going to seed and harvested 4 oz of it.
I harvested 2 oz of peppermint and hug in the attic to dry. I drink peppermint tea almost every day so it makes sense to start drying my own. There is a lot of peppermint and spearmint in the front garden.
Total this Week: 1.28 pounds
Total this Year: 4.79 pounds

You can see what other gardeners harvested at Daphne's Dandelions.

That is a great use for your attic.

You go right back and count the weight of that onion, young lady! You planted it. It grew. No different than buying young transplants or seeds for your garden!

By the way, nice harvest ;-)

I agree, if it came out of your ground, you grew it!

Isn't fresh lettuce wonderful?

I'm missing oakleaf lettuce this year, it seems to be missing from my seed mix. Very nice harvests Emily.

I LOVE peppermint tea and planted a peppermint plant this year specifically for that reason!

What a great place to dry it! I am interested to hear more on how your leaf drying/tea making goes!

Yum peppermint tea. I usually only make it in the winter though. I'm not a fan of iced tea.

Drying the mint in the attack will also keep the mice away. They hate it.
