I'm really proud of this. Not that I've done anything different this year than any other time. But it is my first ever large head of broccoli. Sure I've gotten 4 or 5 inch heads before, but never an 8" head. I guess the plants really liked the cool wet weather we had last week. The corn I seeded sure didn't. It still hasn't shown signs of germinating. I think it might have rotted in the ground.
This is my main harvest for the week - komatsuna, snap peas, kohlrabi, Japanese turnips, and camomile. The kohlrabi did better this year than any other too. I think the brassicas have liked the weather recently. Though they won't be as happy with this week's weather. My heat lovers will appreciate it though.
You see that empty spot in the basket. I had already weighed and given the snow peas to my townhouse mates. I totally forgot their photo. I got enough snap peas finally to make some refrigerator pickles. I'm happy now. Or will be in a few days when they get pickled enough.
And speaking of forgetting to photograph. Not only did I forget to photograph two of my harvests of strawberries, but I forgot to weight them too. Both were larger than this one, and one was a lot larger than this one. So I guessed they weighted 2lbs total. But I'm sure they were probably twice as much. Last Harvest Monday was my huge week for strawberries and now they a petering out just a bit. The Earliglows are over and the Sparkle just isn't producing as much. I think my everbearer is producing more than the Sparkle. So sad. If it continues next year, I'm probably going to pull them and just make them all Earliglow or maybe try another later variety.
