Harvest Monday: May 11
My computer is slowly dying ... I have a new one but haven't switched over my photos and programs yet. The number five key doesn't work on this one so I haven't shown the year in the title of the post although I normally would show the full date. I also no longer have use of the hyphen key (I also can't use the delete button but the backspace seems to meet my needs for now). But the lack of the Ctrl key is problematic (extra work to copy and paste). Time to switch over to the new computer soon!
But on to the garden ... I gave my chives a haircut (much needed). 179 grams worth! And I continue to harvest asparagus as it pops up, although I'm careful to leave a few to mature into ferns (early years for the asparagus patch still). I had 4 harvests (3 to 4 spears each) amounting to 294 grams for the week (actually two ninety five but, you know, no five button).
One small batch went into an omelet (I've never been very good at making omelet's but if not pretty, this one sure was tasty!).
I'm mostly planting and prepping other gardens, so not a lot of harvest action. So lots going on, but not quite ready for me to harvest much. Check out Daphne's Dandelions to see what other gardeners are harvesting (or cooking) this week.
P.S. to Wordpress users ... I try to leave comments (Norma, Marcia) but it asks me for my wordpress password. I no longer use wordpress but still have an account that I'm trying to close. Today I tried using googleplus but it still wouldn't let me complete posting of the comment. I'll keep working on it!
