Harvest Monday 1/16/12

First I have an exciting new addition to my weekly harvests:

Not the broccoli, the digital scale!  I ran into it on sale last week and now I've been happily weighing my veggies with a new sense of accuracy.

On to the harvest: I had 6.4 oz of broccoli, 7.2 oz of radishes (I weighed the roots and leaves separately because I used the tops to make radish top soup- I'll post recipe and pictures soon), 0.6 oz of spinach, 0.7 oz of lettuce, 0.4 oz of pac choi, and 10.9 oz of turnips.  

My weekly total was 2.18 lbs, no complaints for mid January. 

Year total: 9.2 lbs

To see what others are harvesting check out Harvest Monday at Daphne's Dandelions.


  1. Looks great for January. The only thing nicer than fresh vegetables just picked and cleaned are those same ones prepared and ready to eat.

  2. Congrats on the scale! I'm jealous of your harvest. :)


  3. Lovely harvest... it sure makes me question my love of Maine. At least in January!

  4. ignorant gardener... even better would be if someone else did the cooking ;)

    Lynn.. thanks, the scale makes harvesting easier with less guessing! I'm sure you will have plenty to harvest when spring and summer comes around.

    henbogle... I've always wanted to visit Maine, I hear it is gorgeous. Don't worry, I will be jealous of your weather and harvests come late summer when it's so hot and humid here that I and the plants give up. And don't get me started on the amount of bugs we have in this part of the world.
