This week has been all about yummy and delicious strawberries! Definitely a sign of spring arriving here. I could sit in the garden eating strawberries all day long. Sadly, there's only enough to last a few minutes. Here's a portrait of some in the brief time they survived outside the garden:
I harvested a total of 2.8 lbs of strawberries and they were quickly devoured. I'll share a strawberry recipe on Thursday.
Also this week I harvested 15.7 oz of beets. They were roasted and eaten with some butter, salt, and pepper.
There has been plenty of salads this week (12.9 oz of lettuce). Only one romaine got a picture. This is the last of the fall/winter romaine as it is starting to bolt. The spring lettuce is quickly growing so the salad supply should continue. I also just ordered some heat resistant lettuce: Grandpa Admire's Lettuce. I have never heard of this variety, but it is an heirloom butterhead that is suppose to handle the heat. I'm hoping it can help extend my salad season.
This is also the last of the winter spinach at 11.7 oz. I thought I would try to freeze some spinach, but I ended up making creamed spinach and eating it all. I just realized I put the spinach at the end of the post, again. Poor spinach is feeling neglected again!
Weekly total: 5.3 lbs
Yearly total: 29.32 lbs worth $64.39
