Welcome to Harvest Monday, where we celebrate all things harvest related. I managed to get a couple of fresh harvests last week. The greenhouse lettuce is finally large enough to start cutting. Everything grows slowly this time of year, so I am happy to get this modest cutting of greens for salad. This is Ezrilla, a frilly green one-cut Tango type lettuce. I’m also growing Tango itself which should be ready for cutting soon. We enjoyed this batch on a salad I made for lunch one day.
And I made another small cutting from the turnip greens. Our weather has moderated and warmed up a bit and the fall greens are so far still alive and growing. Some of these went into stuffed mushrooms, and the rest got cooked up for a side dish. The fall garden did not do nearly as well as it usually does, but the turnips have held on quite nicely.
I want to thank Ally for helping me with this post. She does like to sit on my lap, and has been known to jump up and surprise me. She is also fascinated by the computer monitor, especially when I show her cat-friendly videos like this one with Birds and Squirrels Being Awesome. Yep, she really likes that one with the sound turned up!
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 of any size or shape you want to share, add your name and blog link to Mr Linky below. And please be sure and check out what everyone is harvesting, or wishing they were harvesting!
