Busy, busy, busy.. that's how life has been lately. Spring has brought plenty of garden work, the final stretch of the semester has arrived with too much to do, add to that Jeff's birthday, Easter, and a camping trip and I've been neglecting harvest Monday!
This is a double week report. Most of the harvest recently has been lettuce (5.4 oz), carrots (2.1 oz), and radishes (2.1 oz), so I've been having plenty of salads. The other harvest was beets at 1.53 lbs:
I boiled the beet roots and seasoned them with salt and pepper. I added the beet leaves to a quiche along with onions and mushrooms. This was my first time eating beet leaves and I was happy to discover that they are tasty.. at least in a quiche!
The garden seems to be between seasons now with most of the winter crops done or bolting. I can't seem to get myself to pull the flowering radishes and turnips because every time I'm in the garden the bees and butterflies are all over them.
Two week total: 2.0 lbs
Yearly total: 20.97 lbs worth $40.23
