The harvests have finally started to come in this spring. Above is the first basket of Asian greens.
Next up was some lettuce. Sometimes I just harvest the outer leaves, but this bed needs to be cleared out in a few weeks for the next crop, so I'm harvesting heads of lettuce. The Red Sails are small heads, but in reality I'm thinning that section so the others have room to grow.
I got a very nice harvest off of my winter spinach. The Winter Giant has long since bolted, but I think I'll get one more harvest out of the Space. I'm never going to grow Winter Giant again. It just doesn't do well in this garden.
And I had two exciting harvest. The first is my kale raab aka kale blossoms. The overwintered kale did terribly this winter. Some died. Some lost all their leaves and the top died. I won't get much of a leaf harvest or a blossom harvest, but what I do get is delicious. It is one of my favorite treats of spring.
The other treat is choy sum. It is a terrible cropper. I get so little out of the space I give it, yet I keep growing it. Some year I must say no. But I do love the tiny crop it gives me. I might get a second wave, but usually if I do it is really small and more tough than the first.
