How crazy are things? It's the first of July and the Blackeyed Susans are just now showing their pretty little faces !
And it's Monday, and time for Monday harvest at Daphne's Dandelions. Every Monday, pretty much. A day to show off what you're harvesting in your zone, or putting up or whatever. Eating, I suppose. lol Anyway, it's fun and you get to visit bloggers you might never have come across otherwise, so that's double fun !
Okay--the biggest producer in my gardens right now are the greens. We have had such crazy weather and sooooo much rain here we couldn't even get the gardens IN until Memorial Day. That makes for a late spring. It's been raining the past 3 days again, and although we did finally have a few days of nice hot weather, it went form 96 one day to 80 the next and is now hovering down in the low 70's and high 60's again. Last year we had blistering heat and not nearly enough rain. Things burned up. It's the Roulette Wheel of gardening, isn't it ?
Went out this morning and picked a nice large bowl of kale. Will probably saute it with EVOO and garlic.
Here are a few really young green beans and some small radishes. Stir fry ? Salad ?
I picked off quite a few large leaves from the sage plant. I have another plant that's much smaller, and probably still have some sage hanging in the back drying closet that I haven't put away yet. (oops).
A big bowl of the 2 lettuces--this will make a nice salad for supper. Bronze Mignonette and Red Romaine.
A nice little batch of spinach and chard. I am having more bug problems with these this year than I have EVER had. The bug problem in general out here is ghastly because of all the rain and flucuating weather, I think.
And finally, though this is not a harvest, I am excited because the flowers are starting to show on the edamame. WooHoo !!!!
Thanks for coming by and make sure to go visit Daphne if you get a chance, and all the other great bloggers that take part in this !
Bon Apetit !
