It was a pretty good harvest week. The Baby Choi is growing like gang busters!! The Pak Choi this spring was very small and bolted during the cold rainy weather. These guys are taking over the one cold frame bed. There were 14 plants in there. Yesterday I harvested 3.
Although they are not as full as they could grow to be. I had to start harvesting them due to their size.
Look at these huge leaves!
I have been picking some strawberries every morning. I have to say that I'm am very pleased with the flavor of all 3 varieties that I planted: Jewel (June), Annapolis (early June) & Ozark Beauty (everbearing). Every single strawberry is so so sweet.
2 lbs. 7 oz. of Strawberries this week......not counting the ones that I eat when I am over at the plots!
All of the remaining Kohlrabi has been picked, one white and four purple.
The purple are quite pretty.
The hard neck garlic is starting to develop scapes.
Aren't they pretty?
Our favorite harvest of the week has been the Spring Blush Snap Peas.
The peas are being picked daily and are so so sweet. We could eat them every day! I have to save some to freeze so we can enjoy them during the winter. I always pick my snap and snow peas before they get very big. We enjoy the younger tender peas the best.
I have also been pulling some spring onions, harvesting some herbs for cooking and cutting some very small side shoots from the Calabrese sprouting broccoli. The sprouting broccoli has not been doing as well as they should be. I guess it is from the crazy weather we have had this spring. I am hoping that the Walthan 29 will do much better.
Total Harvest for the 8.25 lbs.
Broccoli - 3 oz.
Baby Choi - 2 lbs. 1 oz.
Kohlrabi - White: 7 oz. Purple: 1 lb. 15 oz.
Scapes - 2 oz.
Spring Blush Snap Peas - 1 lb.
Strawberries - 2 lbs. 7 oz.
