It’s time for Harvest Monday, where we celebrate all things harvest related. My harvests are repetitive but we’re unlikely to get tired of them anyway soon. I cut more lettuce to go in salads. I’ve still got quite a bit ready to eat from the greenhouse planting, and I now have seeds started indoors to plant a succession crop for spring harvest.
The Santee PSB has really grown well in the greenhouse, and the three plants are giving us lots of sprouts right now. It’s such a treat to have this seasonal veggie, especially at this time of year when the harvests are limited. I got a half pound in this latest cutting, and the plants are still going strong though the sprouts get smaller.
And there’s still lots of kale for cutting in the greenhouse. White Russian is one of my favorites, and has a sweet mild taste with tender leaves. I also look forward to the kale rapini which will likely come later in March. I’ve got about a dozen kale plants growing and they should keep us well supplied in greens and rapini.
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!
Hope to see Mr. Linky in the morning. Like to give our British readers a head start on the day so post on Sunday evening. Thanks for your faithful hosting.
Sorry about Mr Linky – it should be there now!
Our PSB finally made an appearance this week, but just two spears from 15 plants! Abunance in a few weeks looks likely. I’m growing Santee PSB in a week as a summer flowering crop as it doesn’t need a period of cold weather to trigger flowering https://steves.seasidelife.com/2020/03/01/allotment-diary-march-2020-week-1/ : All the best – Steve
I think repetitive harvests are the order of the day at this time of year. First harvest of spring?
Salads for lunch from the greenhouse in March! Congrats! I think I will try Santee PSB next year. I found a very helpful article in Johnny’s Grower’s Library on growing PSB. Santee is recommended for mild winter areas. Thanks for inspiring me.
