The week’s harvest started innocently enough with a basket of fava beans. Here you have it, one basket of favas, nice and full. It’ll take some time to shell and peel them, but before it gets too tedious the job will be done.
I brought in another basket full, and another one, and another one… By the time I had filled the two vegetable drawers of my fridge with favas I stopped harvesting. I am going to spend a whole lot of time shelling and processing this pile of beans. And there are a lot more where those came from!
Sunday dinner included a nice bunch of red chard. Since I didn’t have room for it left in the fridge, I made a chard bouquet and set it on my desk. Who needs flowers if there is gorgeous chard in the garden?
To round up the week’s harvest, I picked carrots, scallions, savoy cabbage, little broccoli florets, bok choy, radishes, and lettuce, lots of lettuce. The garden took good care of us this week!
Head on over to Daphne’s Dandelions, host of Harvest Monday, and take a look at what other gardeners are harvesting. I so enjoy checking the progress of the season in gardens all over the world. You will too.
