I had three strawberry harvests this week. The first photo was so blurry that it didn't come out, but it was also tiny. So here is the middle photo. It was a nice few cups of strawberries.
The last one filled a half of one of my 12 cup containers. And they are oh so good. They are Everglow an early strawberry. Seascape, my everbearers, have just started too. I picked just a couple of them. But what I'm waiting for is the Sparkle strawberries. I've grown them in the past and the are so tasty. But they are a mid to late season berry so I'll wait a bit longer for them.
I finally got some beautiful choy sum. Hopefully the warm weather this weekend won't send them into small tough stems. I love the fat juicy ones.
Then I had yet another big komatsuna harvest with a few turnips thrown in.
My biggest harvest by far was the chard. That looks like a small plate, but it is your typical dinner plate size. I had just over five pounds. Most went to my townhouse mates to freeze for the winter.
I ripped out half the spring spinach as it was starting to bolt. This week I'll have to rip out the next half. Then my spinach will be all gone. I froze most of the spinach for winter.
My greens had been piling up over the last two weeks and I gave away greens to four different families so that I would just have a reasonable amount in my fridge. Basically I couldn't fit it all in the fridge and I had to bring out a cooler until some of it was gone. And it looks like the greens don't show any signs of stopping their production. Soon the snap peas will join the fun.
