Harvest Monday 5/21/12

We finally got some decent rainfall last week, which the garden happily soaked up.  It has been in the 80s this week, which is more typical of late May around here.  Here's what I've been harvesting in my garden this week: 

I had a total of 12.4 oz of lettuce this week, so plenty of salads.  In my salads I added a few little radishes (2.1 oz).  I will probably have to harvest my lettuce patch soon because some of them are starting to bolt.  I'm trying to extend my lettuce season this year.  I got Grandpa Admire's lettuce seeds that are suppose to handle extreme heat and I'm starting some seeds every week, so hopefully the salads will continue!

Also this week was 1.2 lbs of Swiss chard, which was turned into a tasty quiche.

Lastly this week was 8.8 oz peas.  I only have one word to describe them... yum!

Weekly total:2.65 lbs
Yearly total: 39.81 lbs worth $87.82

That's all the harvests coming from my garden this week, to see what others are harvesting check out Harvest Monday at Daphne's Dandelions.

Happy Gardening!
