Harvest Monday: October 20, 2014
Arugula! I can't recall when I planted this ... either late August or early September. Very nice to have a fall planting of some fresh greens.
And it's nice to still have something to contribute to Daphne's Dandelions Harvest Monday collection! I look forward to seeing what the more southerly gardeners are showing off this week.
In addition to the arugula, I have more kale - the stalks of the russian kale is getting tough but the leaves are just fine. The tuscan black kale is still quite tender.
While cleaning up the gardens, I continue to find wayward potatoes (and this single Paris Market Atlas carrot) that I missed the first time around. And these spring onions are getting nibbled too much so I decided to just pull them (almost nothing left of the greens on most of them).
And finally, some tarragon. I noticed that most of two tarragon plants had either turned brown or the leaves had come right off. So I salvaged what I could from the third plant and will dry it or freeze it (not sure the best way to save tarragon) as I have no use for it right now.
