We have now skipped spring and moved on to summer. It was 86 F (30 C) this afternoon! I have a feeling the peas are not going to approve of the "spring" weather. The good thing about all the warm weather is the garden has gone from a slow crawl to racing full speed ahead.
The lettuce and spinach have provided for plenty of salads this week with 4oz of each:
I may have previously said that I harvested the last of the fall broccoli, but I guess I lied because I ended up with 5.6 oz more. I promise that this really is the last harvest as I pulled the broccoli to make room for the recently arrived asparagus.
My most thrilling harvest this week was a carrot. Yes, one lone carrot is thrilling in my garden. I planted carrots back in September, so to finally pull a full size carrot (2.9 oz) was the highlight of my week. The seeds I planted was a mix of orange, purple, red, and white carrots. I still can't wait to harvest the other colors.
Buried somewhere under the lettuce was one little radish. Most of the radishes have bolted and are adding some pretty flowers to the garden.
The biggest harvest this week was 1.4 lbs of turnips. I had one mega turnips and lots of mini turnips:
Weekly total: 2.5 lbs
Yearly total: 17.86 lbs worth $33.91
