My first harvest of the year!
8 Giant Easter Egg Radishes! This is my first year growing radishes. I could have picked even more, but I'm not sure how many radishes I can eat in a day or two...how long do radishes last in the refrigerator? Should I go ahead and pick out all of the radishes that are ready, or will they keep in the ground like carrots?
Merveille de Quatre Saisons Lettuce (Marvel of Four Seasons). I harvested the baby greens to give the mature heads more room to grow. Total harvest was about one large baggy of greens to enjoy this week.
(not pictured) Rhubarb stalks - 4 cups.
I am really pleased with the garden this year. The plants are all looking very healthy and growing like crazy. I'm anticipating a harvest of Swiss Chard sometime this week or next, and green beans should be flowering soon.
This is my first post to Harvest Monday, although I've been a follower for years. For more great harvests, check out Daphene's Dandelions blog.
