It has been a while since I have been able to post a harvest for “Harvest Mondays.” Although the garden is still under a few feet of snow, the greens growing under the lights in the basement were ready for their first harvest this weekend:
We had enough for a couple salads, which tasted so good and fresh.
I also made turkey soup this week using turkey stock, leftover meat and preserved garden vegetables from the freezer:
Garden grown vegetables used in the soup included carrots, onions, celery, spinach, and pea pods. Dried oregano and thyme from the garden and fresh parsley and rosemary from the plants growing on the windowsill were also used. Unfortunately, I am running low on preserved garden bounty but have adjusted the amounts grown for the upcoming 2011 growing season.
Be sure to visit Daphne’s Dandelions to see what others are harvesting this week.
