Harvest Monday February 22, 2021

It’s time once again for Harvest Monday, where we celebrate all things harvest related. I only managed one fresh harvest last week. And I had to dig out around the greenhouse door to get that one! We had snow coming down on two occasions last week, and it is piling up on the ground. It’s pretty to look at, but not great for gardening. The temperatures are expected to moderate this coming week and it should be all melted soon.

I did cut some kale when I got in there, a bit of both Dazzling Blue and Purple Moon. I used the Dazzling Blue in soup, and the Purple Moon went into a frittata.

I baked up a batch of Multi-Grain Seeded Dinner Rolls to go with the soup. This is my go-to recipe for dinner rolls, hearty and full of whole grains and seeds.

My wife did take advantage of the somewhat rare snow to do some snow dying. She did a tank top for me using green dye which I think turned out well. It will be awhile before it warms up enough for me to comfortably wear it though! It will be just the thing for staying cool around the house during our hot summers.

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!

  1. You are lagging us by a week Dave, I’m finally back harvesting! After my diary went to press, I did a nice harvest that will be in next weeks diary. How do you compare the lovely selection of kales that you grow with all of the collards?

    • Dave @ HappyAcres says:

      Well, I’m not sure how compare the kale with the collards! We tend to use the collards much like we use kale, braised for a side dish or added to soup and stews. The collard leaves are a bit more sturdy and hold up better to longer cooking I think. The plants also produce more edible weight, since the leaves are larger and usually a bit thicker.

    I was going to say he same as Steve. The bread buns look delicious. I’ve never heard of snow printing – I’ll have to look it up.

  3. I must grow the Dazzling Blue kale next year. I’m enchanted with the magenta vein. Hsve you lost any veggies or herbs in the greenhouse with the cold this winter? And oh those rolls…

    • Dave @ HappyAcres says:

      A few of the lettuce leaves have gotten burned a bit from the freezing, but the kale and broccoli plants seem pretty well unfazed.
