We are on the road today in Upstate New York heading to Lake Ontario for some camping. I left my garden behind on Friday, so this is what I harvested before leaving. The weather up here is nice and cool, but back home it is in the upper 90's with no chance of rain. I'm nervous leaving my garden's survival in the hands of a battery operated timer that failed last year! Here's hoping I return to a living garden.
Here's what I harvested this week in the garden: Chinese cabbage and a small head of Golden Acre cabbage.
They got used to make this Asian coleslaw that was very delicious.
I also harvested a few more White Castle onions weighing 1.5 lbs:
With the hot weather, I thought I should go ahead and harvest most of the root crops: carrots, beets and turnips. This is the last of the turnips. Those yellowmargined leaf beetles definitely reduced turnip production this year.
I also harvested the last of the peas and completely forgot to weigh them or take a picture. They make great road trip snacks!
Carrots 1.9 lbs
Turnips 9.9 oz
Chard 1.3 lbs
Cabbage 1.3 lbs
Beets 2.0 lbs
Onions 1.5 lbs
Chinese cabbage 1.2 lbs
Yearly Total: 116.9 lbs
That's all the harvests coming from my garden this week. To see what others are harvesting, check out Harvest Monday on Our Happy Acres.
