Harvest Monday: July 14, 2014
I am finally starting to get a bit more variety in my harvest! New this week are Hungarian Hot Wax peppers and some Isobel pole beans. I made a quick pickle with the cukes, peppers and onion. The onion was an accidental harvest while weeding - obviously nowhere near ready yet.
And although I posted about my garlic problems, I neglected to include them in a previous Harvest Monday post so here are some of them being cleaned up.
And another big batch of lettuce greens ...
And I decided it was time for a big basil harvest before they all start to flower. I made yet another pesto; this time the more traditional style with basil and pine nuts (a quadruple batch).
I made a tasty pasta with some of the greens from the previous week (arugula, spinach, etc.) plus fresh cherry tomatoes (not mine), peppers and some oven-dried tomatoes leftover from last fall.
