Welcome to Harvest Monday, where we celebrate all things harvest related. My harvests last week looked a lot like other recent harvests. I made a small cutting of lettuce from the greenhouse, this time green Tango. This wound up on a taco salad we had for lunch one day.
And I harvested the rest of the sunflower shoots from the planting I made a couple of weeks ago. This batch yielded right at 4 ounces of shoots, enough to keep us supplied until the next batch is ready. The going rate locally is about $5 for a 1.5 ounce bag, which means I grew around $13 worth of sprouts using a small amount of seed. I’d grow them even if it wasn’t so cost-effective because my wife and I both enjoy the taste and use them on salads, sandwiches and other dishes.
I did bake a loaf of no-knead sourdough bread last week. I proofed it in an oval brotform then baked it in my Breadtopia oblong clay baker. It had a crispy crust and great flavor, and much of it went into the freezer for later use. I try and have a variety of bread in the freezer for us to use, even though we don’t necessarily eat a lot of bread. When we do eat it though, it’s homemade since we haven’t bought any in almost 10 years now.
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!
