Welcome to Harvest Monday, where we celebrate all things harvest related, and anything else that needs celebrating! I found a few things to add to the ever popular frittata we had for lunch one day last week. This time it was Koji tatsoi, Apollo arugula and chives from the Wild Garden. I made another small cutting of the tatsoi to add a little green to some soup. I love the big leaves on the Koji tatsoi, and it seems to be a bit more productive than Yukina Savoy which I have grown in the past. I got the seeds for it from Johnny’s Selected Seeds.
I also got more lettuce from the greenhouse, including Pele, Garrison, Salanova Green & Red Butter, and Spritzer.
And I got more kale from the greenhouse, this time from a Darkibor plant I pulled up. It was bolting and we ate the rapini as well as the leaves.
And in the ‘what do you do with it’ department, we used some of the honeyed garlic I made a couple of months ago for a sauce to go with broiled salmon. The recipe calls for ginger, soy sauce and fresh lime juice along with the garlic honey, and a bit of sambal oelek if you want some heat. I also use the honey in stir fry sauces and in marinades. Cooking kills the probiotics, but you can always have a spoonful of it raw and your gut will thank you! With time the garlic becomes candied, and mellows considerably.
Harvest Monday is a day to show off your harvests, how you are saving your harvest, or how you are using your harvest. If you have a harvest you want to share, add your name and blog link to Mr Linky below. And be sure and check out what everyone is harvesting!
I’ve never heard of garlic honey or honeyed garlic.
Your lettuces and greens look perfect and the honeyed garlic sounds delicious. Once I finish potting up the rest of the seedlings tomorrow I’ll do a greenhouse tour. It’s funny how fast spring is passing by but the ground is still too wet to till.
We got more rain last night, so it will be a while before I can work up the garden here.
Your lettuces look absolutely perfect. You can’t buy lettuce that looks that good. I really do have to remember to make some of honeyed garlic when the new crop garlic comes to the farmer’s market.
Our weather has finally warmed up and it’s been clear and sunny. Perhaps it will make its way towards you!
All of your greens look amazing! With any luck, I’ll be harvesting some in the not too distant future – we had our first great gardening day yesterday and it looks like we have finally turned a corner & I’ll be able to get some sowing & transplanting done this week. The honeyed garlic looks delicious btw – yum!
Mmm, wish we had some of those lettuces! My new ones for thus year are teeny seedlings at the moment.
