And now for some good news


Today’s harvest:  chard, Tuscan kale, 9 snow peas (the few the rodent left), scallions garlic scapes.  Not shown, 3 gallons bags of washed lettuce.

I cooked the chard stems, peas, and garlic scapes lightly and tossed them with multigrain spaghetti and spicy peanut sauce.  YUM!

    Yay! Nice harvest. Those look like rocambole scapes. Yes? I’m quite jealous of your kale harvest. For the life of me I can’t figure out why my plants are not growing this year. They just seem to have stopped at a few inches tall. I’ve started over but SO frustrating!

    Now that is a nice healthy harvest. I did notice blossoms on my tomato plants, lettuce is two inches high and no Japanese Beetles. I take this as a positive sign. If we could only manage to get stawberry picking in between the rain drops!

    Chard always seems to be the prettiest plant in my harvest, just like it is in yours. All I seem to get are peas and greens. Last year I was picking squash and cucumbers by now. I guess I’ll be thankful for my peas and greens.

    YEY! Chard is so pretty, and one of my fav vegs to eat :-) I’m glad you were able to have a good day and harvest, it is these things that redeem it all after things like the brassica struggles. I’d never have thought to pair chard and peas – it’s something to try.

      Well, there were only 9 peas, 4.5 each, so it wasn’t really a pairing….. but tasty nonetheless.
