I can't believe how quickly this past week went by. We had some serious heat followed by some thundershowers. The garden responded by putting on some incredible growth. I will share more photos later in the week because today is Harvest Monday.
Each Monday, Daphne’s Dandelions hosts “Harvest Monday” where everyone can share links to their harvest for the week. It’s fun to see what everyone is harvesting from his or her gardens in different areas.
The first few Garlic Scapes were harvested. These were chopped into 1-inch pieces, sautéed in olive oil, and used as a pizza topping. I am in love with their sweet and light garlic flavor and am looking forward to more this week.
The remaining spring planted lettuce was picked before the predicted "heat wave" began. Thankfully, this is the last lettuce harvest for a while. We have a lot stored in the fridge right now.
Soon we will be enjoying more variety from the garden. The heat has kicked the garden into a growth spurt. There are so many things in bloom right now, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, summer squash, zucchini, and melons. The peas are beginning to produce as well. The garden is showing such promise of harvests to come.
Be sure to visit Daphne's Dandelions to see what others are harvesting this week.
