It’s time once again for Harvest Monday, where we celebrate all things harvest related. Lettuce from the greenhouse was my only harvest last week. This time it was Panisse, an oakleaf type with smooth and tender leaves. We used some of this for bean tostadas last week.
We are eating plenty of things from stores however. Turkey Craw beans from the freezer were on the menu one night as a side dish. I also cooked some of the turnip greens I froze last fall. I blanched those briefly before freezing, and they cooked up quickly. They were tender and mild tasting, and I made a note to freeze more of them this year since we enjoy eating them so much. I did freeze a lot of beans though, and they should keep us supplied until the new crop of fresh ones comes on.
Out in the perennial beds, the Hellebores have started blooming. They are the first to bloom in our shady border area.
Another sign of spring are the early Daffodils which opened up last week. Their day in the sun was followed by a March snow that brought cold temperatures and chilling winds. I hope that was winter’s last hurrah, since I am more than ready for spring!
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!
