One of my favorite parts of the day is roaming around my vegetable garden looking to see what is ready to harvest. This is my first big veggie harvest of this season.
First Big Veggie Harvest of the Season
Here in NC, we have had an unseasonably cold spring. Many seeds did not germinate at all (my poor peas!!) and weeds were a really big problem for me early on. They choked out what did germinate.
I was somewhat forced into succession planting by necessity. I just filled in a lot of holes yesterday with more seeds.
Today I was delighted to find that I had quite a few things ready to bring in. Many are the salad related items but I also got a nice big harvest of peas.
In the basket are –
- a quart of peas
- few small heads of broccoli
- some spring onions (mainly to thin the row)
- carrots – once again to thin the row, I use the tops in salads
- beet greens
- mesclun lettuce
- cos lettuce
- Swiss chard
- radishes (I have LOTS of them in the garden)
Looks like we’ll be having a nice salad for dinner!
