It’s time once again for Harvest Monday, where we celebrate all things harvest related. Another month has flown by, which is pretty amazing considering my only trips outside the house are for weekly trips to the grocery and almost daily walks around our neighborhood! I have kept busy with gardening activities, and that includes planting and weeding as well as harvesting. The asparagus is finally taking off, and we had enough last week to roast a batch one day for lunch. A little olive oil and a sprinkle of salt is all the seasoning it needed.
I pulled all the broccoli from the greenhouse, and quite a bit of the kale. I froze some of the kale for later use. The Groninger Collard Kale plants got huge and made lots of leaves over the winter.
The kale rapini are still coming on and we’re still eating them.
The Flashy Trout Back lettuce was ready for harvest. This version of the heirloom Forellenschluse has buttery soft green leaves with bright red splashes on them. It’s colorful as well as tasty.
I’ve also been picking other greens for salads as needed. These include the Mizspoona, Sorrel and arugula. All three add a bit of extra flavor to the mix.
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!
