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.
It has been really hot lately even here in Maine compared to what we are used to. I hate to complain about the heat especially since so many have suffered so much worse over the past few weeks. We have also had a lot of thunderstorms that have dumped a good amount of rain. The garden loves the heat and is happily growing. Much more variety was harvested from the garden this week.
Just enough Green Arrow Peas were harvested and cooked up as a side dish. I am not a big fan of peas, but K loved them:

The Zucchini and Yellow Sumer Squash have made their appearance. They are sizing up really fast in this heat. So far I am keeping up with harvesting them young but it is inevitable that some will get away from me soon:

The mixed basket below was added to the lettuce still in the refrigerator for some nice salads.
|New Zealand Spinach, Swiss Chard, Celery, Scallion, Summer Squash|
The New Zealand Spinach was added to salads for some crunch and texture, but I have to admit it didn't have much flavor. I will try it sautéed with olive oil and garlic next harvest.
