Harvest last week was again boring ol’ greens, but at least the peas are starting to produce. My radishes are a flop and are now bolting with no measurable bulb size. Given all the cool, rainy weather I don’t understand. On the bright side, none are showing signs of cabbage root maggot damage. I should have some white turnips to pull this week.
The escarole is being harvested now. This one went into Italian sausage with escarole and beans for Friday’s dinner.
The mustard Green Wave is looking very good and not showing any flea beetle damage. Mustard is often used as a trap crop for flea beetles, but I want to actually eat it. Maybe it is because the flea beetles have not been very present in the garden this year. I am keeping my eggplant sprayed or under cover and I just have not seen that many after the initial onslaught. Last year they were early and continuous so you figure this year would be even worse, but so far not.
More chard, Bright Lights and Orange Fantasia on the right. Some of this went into a Sunday morning breakfast frittata.
Finally, the snow peas are producing. This is Oregon Sugar Pod II and I like it a lot. The sugar snaps are flowering and I probably should get some this week.
That’s all that is happening in my garden this week To see what goodies other gardeners around the world are harvesting, head over to Daphne’s Dandelions, our host for Harvest Monday.
