Harvest Monday: July 25, 2016
The harvests have more variety as each week passes. These rainbow carrots were an accidental harvest while weeding.
And I've picked my first tomatoes and some bunching onions. The fingerling potatoes were from a volunteer plant that had grown up in the space I planted shallots and it needed to be removed. The potatoes (parboiled), along with some Tuscan kale and that one broccoli spear were tossed with olive oil and baked in the oven for a quick dinner one night.
And more potatoes and carrots were harvested for a stew later in the week.
I've had a few Xanthia peppers throughout the week. The above picture also shows one Ancho and one King of the North. I've had what looks like Blossom End Rot on some peppers. Since they are all in the greenhouse, I should be able to manage the watering and nutrients but obviously not quite consistent in my methods.
And just late Sunday I picked some Royal Burgundy beans and pulled some red onions (and a shallot) while cleaning up the beet bed.
Yesterday I posted about this year's garlic harvest so that wraps up my latest harvests.
