We have been enjoying daily salads from lettuce and spinach for a while now, but as the season progresses we can add in additional ingredients as they become available. This week we added some green onions, swiss chard, and celery:
I can already tell that I need to plant more green onions as I am finding I really enjoy their fresh mild flavor and like to add them to a lot of things. I am reseeding the spots where I pull an onion and hope to have a continuous supply. I have also started a batch of green onion seeds for late summer/fall planting. It’s hard to believe, but it is now time to start thinking about fall plantings.
A huge bonus to growing hard necked garlic are the scapes that form this time of year:
This is the largest harvest of garlic scapes that I have ever had. These weighed in at 1 pound, 4 ounces and will be put to good use in pesto, chopped into salads, and any leftovers dried in the dehydrator and jarred up to be used as a spice.
Be sure to visit Daphne’s Dandelions to see what others are harvesting this week.
