Harvest Monday May 4, 2020

It’s time once again for Harvest Monday, where we celebrate all things harvest related. The harvests are small this time of year but we’re still getting them. I got a small harvest of microgreens last week to go on salads. I’m growing them in small containers and replanting every week so I have a small but steady supply. If you are interested in growing microgreens yourself here is more information on how I do it: Experiments with Growing Shoots and Micro Greens. This is a mix I got from Johnny’s Selected Seeds that includes mizuna, cabbage, kale and kohlrabi.

I made a cutting of arugula to go on a pizza we made for dinner one night. This is a mix of Adagio and Purple Stemmed Arugula. I’m planning to let the Adagio go to seed to replenish my supply, since my original source doesn’t list it any more. It’s a fast-growing and slow-bolting variety that was developed by Purdue University.

The asparagus harvests are picking up now that the weather has warmed. We’ve gotten two pounds of it so far, and a typical daily harvest looks like the one below. We used some of it to make Asparagus Mimosa that we enjoyed for lunch one day. We’ve also been enjoy it roasted.

In other news, I baked a batch of Multi-grain Seeded Dinner Rolls last week to go with a meal. I try and keep a few of these in the freezer at all times as they are handy to have and go well with soups or salads.

  1. The Arugula looks nice, I don’t tend to sow it in late spring and summer because it bolts and we have such an abundance of greens, but it does look tempting!

  3. Those rolls look fabulous. It is nice to have rolls in the freezer. I didn’t know about purple-stemmed arugula. I should check out.

    Lovely! Our asparagus is just starting to come in – it’s a late start to the season this year.
