Lots and lots of peas out of the garden this week, 7.5 lbs to be exact. The pea plants are starting to turn yellow, so this, sadly, will probably be the last week of peas.
I froze some snow peas, which is really simple. I blanched them for two minutes.
Followed by an ice bath for another two minutes.
Then into the freezer they went to be added to stir fries later on.
Also in the garden this week was lettuce (10.8 oz), kale (1.8 oz), onions (4.3 oz) and cilantro (0.5 oz). I didn't take pictures of everything, but here is a day's harvest:
In other garden news, we had a flash flood here on Thursday evening. We got about two inches of rain, but very fast. It made a mess of the garden! I had just planted peanuts the day before and the seeds were everywhere. Dirt got washed into the paths and straw got washed into the beds. You can tell there was a river of water running through the garden.
I have been shoveling the dirt out of the paths and putting down new straw. I'm sure I'm going to have a ton of weeds growing in the paths now because there is no way to get all the dirt out. I hope the straw keeps them from becoming a problem. I'm going to wait until the peanuts germinate to see where I need to re-seed them. I just hope it's not getting to late for planting peanuts since they need a very long growing season.
This week puts my total harvest for 2014 at 13.23 lbs. 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.
