This week's harvests brought some firsts.The first cherry tomatoes (3 oz),
The first pickling cucumbers (15 oz) with a few radishes, red and golden beets, cherry tomatoes, green onion and cilantro.
The first carrots (3oz) with some lettuce
The zucchini plants are in full swing and I've already given some away. I'm checking daily to try to keep on top of it. So far we've eaten it grilled, and raw in salads. We'll be sauteing it soon and I may be trying zucchini pickles too. So far we've harvested over 2 pounds of golden and green zucchini. One of the plants of golden zucchini seems to be more in the yellow squash vein. You can see the one on the far right here is lighter in color and has a different shape.
We used the ladder to get the rest of the sour cherries off our tree. This is the total harvest, only 4.5 oz. I picked some rhubarb and used some wild blackberries and picked raspberries to make a sauce to go on yogurt or ice cream. At the beginning of the week I picked the last of the broccoli side shoots (4 oz), sugar snap peas (4 oz) ,and 18 oz of lettuce that was bolting.
Also harvested this week but not shown include enough basil to make pesto, and over a pound of swiss chard.
Total this week: 8.6 pounds
Total this year: 31.1 pounds
