This week was my biggest harvest so far for the year. I harvested veggies that had overwintered in the garden to make room for spring planting.
First up is 2 lbs of turnips:
Unfortunately I think I left the turnips in the ground too long- they were a bit tough and fibrous.
Much tastier were the carrots:
Fall planted carrots are always so much sweeter than the ones I plant in the spring.
Next up are collared greens. These are a first for me to plant because I hate collared greens. Growing up in the South, collared greens make a regular appearance and as a kid I hated them. I decided I would give them a second chance after seeing a recipe that didn't seem to turn them into the green mush I recalled as a child.
I only planted two collared green plants, just to be safe. I sauteed it with garlic and olive oil and cooked it in a quiche. I can say I don't hate collared greens any more, but I wouldn't say I love them. I think I'll stick with kale and swiss chard.
Lastly this week was a handful of broccoli side shoots:
This week's tally:
Turnip 2 lbs
Carrot 9.7 oz
Collar greens 9 oz
Broccoli 0.9 oz
Weekly total: 3 lbs 3.6 oz
