First Ever Harvest Monday
Yahoo I finally am going to participate in Harvest Monday over at Daphnes Dandelions!
Today I harvested the last of the spinach. I think I may try and plant some more if I can find seed anywhere. However, I have heard that spinach doesn't grow well in the summer.
|Last of this years spinach|
More Saskatoon Berries. These are destined to be canned in Syrup. I am not a big fan of eating them that way, but my Aunt loves them so they will all be for her. I also tried something a little different. I mashed up some of the berries and added them to my beef jerky marinade.
Kohlrabi- There are about 20more that are almost ready. I hope they keep maturing a few at a time. Since I don't know what I am going to do with all of them.
Bon Vivant Lettuce- I am surprised that all the heat we had didn't turn the lettuce bitter. I bought a new variety last week and think I will plant it today. If it doesn't turn out then at least the weeds wont take over
I was able to harvest a garden first today. Cabbage. I am not sure if it was ready or not but it was big so i figured what the heck time to come out
And last but not least the first zucchini of the year and maybe last!
