Oh boy, it’s raining today. We get so little rain here in coastal southern California, that it’s cause to celebrate. I have some containers set out to collect rain from the roof because I STILL don’t have my rain barrel hooked up to the gutter’s downspout. I’m an incredible procrastinator, and the older I get, the slower I go.
I harvested kale yesterday to go into a nice dish of sauteed kale with 1/3 C pecans, 1/4 C orange-flavored cranberries and a splash of raspberry vinegar. Earlier in the week, I picked 3 bok choy and 3 bell peppers to go into a turkey stir-fry.
Here’s the harvest for this week:
7 oz. kale, Scotch blue curled
14 oz. bell peppers (3)
1 oz baby bok choy (3)
If you harvested anything this week, visit Daphne’s Dandelions and post your harvest on Mr. Linky.
In southern California, it’s also planting season for cool weather vegetables. This week I planted Kailaan and Komatsuna Japanese greens. Both are new plants for me, but the seed is old. Not sure if they’ll sprout or not. Last week, I planted parsley and German white icicle radishes. The week before that I planted raised bed #3 with onions, snow peas, lettuce, spinach and cauliflower.
