Harvest Monday June 20th 2011

It's been a busy week full of rain, and my Bruins winning the Stanley Cup so gardening was limited to Sunday, when Gail and I managed to to some massively overdue weeding and even planted a little.
I harvested a small amount of Garlic Scape's that I am going to count under 'green garlic' for the final tally. We also got the last of the spring radish's as well as most of the remaining kale, all but 2 smaller plants. The garlic scape's were made into a great pesto with basil from last year, while half the kale was used on another batch of kale chips!

What we harvested:
Garlic Scape's: .65 oz
Radish's: 2.20 oz
Kale 8.75 oz
Total for this week: 11.60 oz
Total for the season: 1.909 lbs (30.55 oz)

With the hockey playoffs wrapped up I should have more midweek time to spent at the garden, although I will be busy the next few weekends so any major projects will have to wait until next month.

If you want to see what other's are harvesting or share in your own bounty, stop by Daphne's Dandelions the home of Harvest Monday.

Any harvest is better than no harvest at all :)

Just as a mini side note for all the faithful readers: Last year I thought our radishes and beets were week (small and not really round). This year we have harvested two big delicious perfect looking radishes!!

We have harvested food better(looks and taste) than the food I purchase in the grocery store! Thanks for all the support on the blog and in person!

Sometimes the garden has to wait a bit while we pursue other passions in our lives. :D

I have to get out and weed too. Usually I mulch more, but I figured this year I'd try something different to keep the slugs from invading too badly. But that means a lot more weeding.
