Welcome to Harvest Monday, where we celebrate all things harvest related. It’s a new month but mostly the same green harvests here. I made a cutting of Winterbor kale from the greenhouse to go in a bean and kale soup I cooked for dinner last week. I love the combination of beans and greens, and they show up frequently on our menus. The kale in the main garden appears to be done for now, but I still have plants going in the cold frame and greenhouse. I have really enjoyed having kale pretty much all fall and winter now, and I have a spring planting ready to go in a couple of week. I don’t generally grow it in summer months when we have lots of other veggies, plus the leaves aren’t as tender and sweet when grown in our heat.
I also made another cutting of lettuce from the greenhouse grow boxes. This is a mix of Salanova Green Butter, Red Sails and Pele. Some of this lettuce went on fish tacos I made for us last week. As with the kale, it’s nice having fresh greens in the winter months.
Also for the tacos, I made a batch of corn tortillas for the occasion. I used Bob’s Red Mill masa harina, following package directions. I used a tortilla press to form the dough, then cooked in an electric griddle. I was quite happy with how they turned out, and I can see me making them again in the near future. They were so tasty, much better than store bought, and I would like to try them for enchiladas and other dishes too.
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!
