Harvest Monday 5/28/12

I was a bit of a photography slacker this week, so I don't have too many pictures of my harvest to share.

The lettuce continues to grow and also bolt.  I have new lettuce seedlings to replace the bolting ones to hopefully keep the salad going.  I had a total of 10.7 oz of lettuce this week.  I also had 4.7 oz of Easter egg radishes to put in my salads.  I didn't plant a lot of radish this spring, so there's probably not too many more to harvest.  The early heat has made many of the radishes go straight to flowering.   The Swiss chard seems much more tolerant of the warm weather and has not bolted yet.  This week I harvest 7.1 oz of chard and a little bit of green onions (0.4 oz).

The biggest harvest this week was peas with 1.6 lbs.  I was also excited to harvest a few strawberries (0.9 oz) this week, despite the ongoing war with the mysterious strawberry thief

I think strawberries taste even better when you have to fight for them!

The exciting new harvest of the week was one little Persian cucumber (1.7 oz).  It was still small, but I was impatient and wanted to put it into the salad for our Sunday cookout.  This was what it looked like a few days before I picked it:

Weekly total:  3.2 lbs
Yearly total: 43.02 lbs worth $97.37

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!


  1. Oh the peas are lovely. I was hoping to harvest my first peas last week, but it was not to be. This week for sure. The first are almost ready.

  2. Your peas look so incredibly delicious! Good job! And good luck with your battle against the strawberry thief! :-)

  3. Hi Julie, A little cucumber! Yummy! My peas are just starting to form. My lettuce is okay yet but the spinach bolted. Strawberries not good! Your garden is doing good! Nancy

  4. Everything looks so good! Looking forward to cukes; should probably plant a few more as one of mine was killed by a digging toad!

  5. You are definitely ahead of me! I am doing well with the lettuce, spinach, carrots and radishes, but no cukes or peas. They seem to be growing though, so I am hoping to be enjoying your delicacies soon!

  6. Such a great pic of the cucumber. :D Ours are barely forming. Can't wait for them to grow.
