I had a couple of harvests the past two weeks. This is a re-run of my last Harvest Monday post. I harvested a small amount of spinach for 'The Italian's" BD dinner last Sunday, February 26th.
The spinach harvest was about 3 oz.
It was just enough to stuff the flank steak which I posted about on Thursday's Kitchen Cupboard.
The remaining Tatsoi in the cold frame was harvested on Wednesday. The Tatsoi was starting to bolt, even the smaller heads.
"Miss Banana" is checking it out. You know how those nosy cats can be!
The Tatsoi weighed in at 45.5 oz.
After the Tatsoi was harvested, I removed the tops from both cold frames. I also turned off the lighting, which I had on a timer to give the plants 2 extra hours of light during the winter. This will give the cold frames some fresh air and exposure to some colder temps. Hopefully, this will help take care of some of the bugs in there. I will also give them a good dose of DE this week.
