This week was a sad week. I had to pull up all my overwintered spinach. This made for a good harvest though. We had some of the smaller spinach and some unphotographed lettuce for dinner last night with the relatives. The gourmet lettuce blend and tasty radishes were much loved, but I did add some store bought carrots and tomatoes.
In addition the Chum Soy and Ching Chang bok choy was starting to bolt. So it was harvested. I hope it tastes good and isn't too mustardy for my tastes. Right now I'll add it into the harvest totals, but if it turns out inedible (which it probably isn't), I'll remove it later.
I pulled out a lot of radishes. They aren't bulbing up as well as the French Breakfast radishes, but some were good. I still weigh all of them since with radishes the leaves are just as important as the roots.
This is why. I make radish top soup in the spring. I find it rather tasty. It is basically just onions and butter sauteed. Then I add potatoes, broth, and the radish tops. Puree them all. Some people add cream to make it even tastier, but I don't always do that. I also like beef broth over chicken now. I used to always make it with chicken broth, but the strong flavor of the beef holds up better to the greens.
