The harvests started with me picking most of my kohlrabi as I had to plant the last of the sweet potatoes.
Over three pounds of strawberries were picked.
This basket contains the disappointing Napa cabbage harvest that was attacked by earwigs. I picked the first of the fava beans. Michelle says she eats the whole pod sometime. I wasn't sure I wanted to sacrifice the inside bean for that, but I had to try it. The flavor is very different. I haven't decided if I like it yet or not. And more turnips were ready to pick. The Japanese turnips are interesting. They don't mature like radishes. With radishes you pick them all at the same time, but turnips mature over a much longer time. So I get some every week which is nice.
The Michihili cabbage was also attacked by earwigs. I cut off the green parts since that is what they ate. Luckily for me the ribs are what I like most.
More peas started to dribble in at the beginning of the week.
I picked over 10 pounds of chard most of which I gave away. The piles is deceiving. It is much taller than it is wide. I'm surprised it didn't fall over.
One monster kohlrabi (1lb 10oz) was hiding in with the broccoli plants. I obviously got the plants mixed up when planting. Whoops!
More peas were ready at the end of the week. I'm sure I'll be eating peas most every day with lunch. I make dips and love munching on them. Some will get cooked, some might get pickled, but most will be eaten raw. Well actually most will be given away. I put more in my townhouse mates fridge than in mine. I also had the first picking of basil and parsley. The parsley will just get chopped into whatever I'm making, but the basil was dried. And since I was out of onions in the house, I picked more bunching onions. I find that I'll use them for meals if they are already picked, but often I don't go out and pick them during meal prep unless I'm desperate. Picking a good handful every week works the best for me.
