This is another week where I haven't been home to pick my crops. I'll be home later today and respond to any blog related questions that I've missed since Thursday.
I seem to have fallen into a pattern of picking my chamomile blooms once a week on Mondays. I won't get to pick them today, but I'll do it again tomorrow morning. Above were picked last Monday. And dried for winter tea.
This basket was picked because I planted some fall veggies. Though the shorter maturing will have one more harvest before the real fall season. I'll seed more of them later. Last year I direct seeded the short maturing fall crops. Maybe I'll do that again if there is a lot of free space at the time.
The first of the pollinated zucchini were picked. Three plants seem to be producing well. The fourth is being slow about it all. There was also another zucchini picked but it didn't get photographed. I also picked some sideshoots of the broccoli. One I picked too late and tossed. Blossoming flowers aren't going to do anything under a row cover.
I needed some lettuce for my sandwiches while I was camping over the weekend. So I picked one of the Anuenue. It is a Hawaiian lettuce that Mac sent me. It is obviously a crisphead, which I haven't grown before.
And last but not least the peas again. I usually pick them twice a week. The Golden Sweet are starting to put out more peas. The Blizzard snow peas didn't have any peas on them, but I can see a new wave of flowers coming in. I hope Cascadia is ready for another wave, because I'll really miss them when they are gone. I usually rip my peas out on July 15th as they give up the ghost then and it gives me time to plant fall carrots in their place. Some of the pea leaves are starting to turn yellow and some are getting powdery mildew, but I expect to get one more wave of Cascadia before they have to go. The peas from successive waves aren't as pristine and tend to be a bit more deformed, but they still taste good. Pea season is just too short.
