Harvest Monday: June 30, 2014
I finally managed to get enough sugar snap peas into the house before eating them that I had enough to prepare a dish with.
I blanched the peas then julienned them for a tasty lunchtime lemony barley risotto.
This week's harvest was pretty similar to last - in addition to the peas, I had various greens including chard, beet greens, several types of lettuce. It has been so hot (30+ degrees C several days in a row now) that the lettuce wilts in the minute it takes to get from the garden to the house.
I am close to having more variety but just need another few days. Cukes are on their way along with some hot peppers.
It is very interesting to see what others are harvesting this time of the year in different parts of the world (some close to me, many not). Check out Daphne's Dandelions Harvest Monday contributors to see for yourself!
