I find that I really look forward to Harvest Monday these days, where gardeners post what they’ve harvested during the previous week. When there is actually a harvest, it’s more fun!
Our “girls” were busy this week, laying 16 eggs. That’s the best week since we’ve had them, and brings our total egg harvest for February to 42 and counting. We’re eating a lot more eggs than we used to, and still have eggs to give away to our son Scott and his growing family.
It’s also planting season here in coastal southern California. This week I planted German white icicle radishes, Melting Sugar snow peas, blue potates, sunchokes, and Super Sugar Sprint peas in a tray for shoots. I also started pots of heirloom tomatoes (Black Krim, Brandywine, and Mortgage Lifter), eggplant (Black Beauty, Rosa Blanca, and Berenjana), and green savoy cabbage.
And now on to the week’s harvest.
6 green onions (1.5 oz.)
lettuce (2.5 oz.)
2 radishes, German white icicle (1 oz.)
herbs: parsley, mint, thyme, rosemary (2 oz.)
1 navel orange (9 oz.)
2 Meyer lemons (11 oz.)
Total produce harvest: 2 lbs, 7 oz.
