In total I harvested 1.5 lbs of White Castle onions this week. Ok, gloating over.
Moving on to other harvests this week, if you can move past that giant onion! Peas were the most abundant veggie from the garden this week at almost 3 lbs. These were mostly Green Arrow shelling peas.
We love to eat these straight from the pods, but I did shell and cook some to go with pasta and Alfredo sauce. Fresh peas are so delicious. I was hoping to have enough peas to freeze this year, but it seems that we may eat them all before I have a chance.
Another big harvest this week was beets at 2.2 lbs:
I boiled some of them and we ate them plain with salt and pepper. I also used the cooked beets to make a lovely salad with lettuce from the garden along with goat cheese, walnuts and a balsamic honey dressing. It was so delicious and fancy. I felt like I was eating at one of those trendy farm to table restaurants, except it was my own back porch and lacked the expensive price tag.
I also roasted some beets along with carrots and turnips from the garden.
Carrots 2 oz
Turnips 6.1 oz
Lettuce 8.2 oz
Beets 2.2 lbs
Peas 2.9 lbs
Onions 1.5 lbs
Yearly Total: 106.5 lbs, already over 100 lbs!
