I had to pull up a couple of extra celery plants. I don't usually pull full heads at this time of the year, but these were extra plants that weren't in the celery block. And I needed the space for my amaranth. At this point they are pretty small, but they are so much nicer than in previous years at this time. I think it will be a banner celery year if this keeps up.
I picked some lettuce to make way for the next succession.
I harvested a lot of parsley to dry. I'm hoping to do this several times over the summer. I also want to freeze some fresh.
All the peas were pulled to make way for the amaranth. I probably could have gotten another flush of snowpeas from the plants, but it would have taken too long.
I pulled the first two cabbages. The round one is Golden Acre. The pointy one is Early Jersey.
My kale and chard are still doing well. I usually pick my chard without the stems as I take them out in the garden. This time it was about to pour, so I picked them fast and had to remove the stems indoors. I know a lot of people love chard stems, but I don't. So to me they are just compost.
I picked several pounds of carrots. I went camping from Thursday to Sunday and I needed the easy to eat vegetables. I also brought the chard, the last of the broccoli heads, and some pickled kohlrabi. BTW I really love the kohlrabi pickles (thanks Dave for the idea). I have a larger batch getting pickled right now.
Though I forgot the photos, I picked the last of the strawberries. There were just a few left. And some raspberries.
