Harvest Monday: June 12, 2017
I've just returned from a Mediterranean Cruise and I am looking forward to get back into the swing of things here. It was challenging to be away during the time when I would normally be putting most of the garden in place and I had to pot up most of my tomato and pepper seedlings into larger pots just before I left. Most are now in their final spot with a few remaining to take care of this week.
I ate a lot of amazing meals while I was away but heavy on the seafood and meat ... and was very much looking forward to some fresh greens when I got home. Unfortunately, the weather here was not so great with a lot of rain, and the greens aren't ready for a cutting yet.
I am happy that I was able to get a bit more asparagus although most of that season passed while I was gone (a friend popped by once or twice to pick what was available so it wouldn't all go to waste). And all of that rhubarb in the main picture went straight into the freezer.
I pulled the last of the Easter egg radishes as they were starting to bolt and I now need the space in the greenhouse for my pepper plants.
Once I am caught up on my yard work, I will share an update on the peppers and tomatoes that I'm growing this year. And I will be popping over to Our Happy Acres to see what everyone else has going on in their gardens on this Harvest Monday.

Ooh, la, la - how nice!ReplyDelete
This cool spring really threw me for a loop - even the cool season crops such as peas and greens didn't enjoy it, which sort of surprised me. And now we are into a heat wave - ugh!
Yes, it seems the usual spring crops have not fared well, far too much rain! Gosh, it's one or the other extreme so often lately, isn't it, especially with the crazy heat the past couple of days.Delete
Your rhubarb and radishes look great. It's too bad you missed most of the asparagus but I bet the cruise was well worth it. It sounds like you've gotten a lot done already since you've gotten back. I'm spending today in the garden and the list is long for what I need to get done there.ReplyDelete
Yes, well always a list of things to be done (or not done as may be the case this year :))Delete
It always seems like no matter how good the food is when I'm traveling that I can never get enough veggies to eat and I always crave fresh homegrown veggies of any sort. I saw some of the amazing food that you enjoyed on your IG feed, wow!ReplyDelete
It can be a lot of fun and great food when eating out, but it's never the same as eating fresh from the garden!Delete
Hmm, what a trade-off...go on a cruise or stay home and eat asparagus? I think the radishes are really interesting-looking.ReplyDelete
Ha, yeah, I can eat asparagus next year, right?Delete
Hope you had a good time on the cruise even if you did miss the greens of home!ReplyDelete
Oh most definitely!!Delete
Glad you enjoyed the cruise! Your easter egg radishes look amazing... such a lovely mix of coloursReplyDelete
