Harvest for the week of 5/30/11

This week we had more of the same stuff.  Spinach, Mustard greens, Asparagus.  This coming week, heat is picking up, so they might not make it to Daphne's Harvest Mondays!  Already Mustard greens are bolting.  I will be plucking them by the roots, to make room for other summer veggies like okra and bush beans.  I might have a smaller harvest of Spinach though.  Asparagus- I can't be certain as to how long they will continue to put out their spears.  Also, picked a smaller harvest of green and red lettuce and a couple of red radishes, to go with the lettuce, for a salad.  I had a small row of Baby Choi, which was pulled out entirely (as it started to bolt) and eaten.

  1. How nice to have Asparagus! We had a teenny, tiny patch for two years and then POOF, all of a sudden, this year there was nothing!

  2. Oh, asparagus! That's one of the things we plan to have in our garden. Your greens are very nice looking. Love the baby choi!

  3. Allison - I've read that Asparagus produces for 15 yrs. So far, Asparagus has been coming up every year(atleast sparsely) in all the places that I've planted them.

    Dirt Lover - Thanks! Make sure to plant them at a spot that is not getting disturbed for a long time :)

  4. Asparagus is such a treat. I am sure those were really enjoyed. The lettuces and greens harvests are quite nice looking too.

  5. I hate having to wait to harvest asparagus. I really love it but it takes a long time before it produces. Maybe I'll get a few spears next year.

  6. KitsapFG - Asparagus is always a treat at our house! Kids love them too.

    Daphne - I understand. We've been through the waiting stages too! Hopefully you'll have some next year!

  7. Yum! I love the look of asparagus poking it's little heads up in the spring. Of course, not in my garden...but I've seen it! : )

  8. Beautiful fresh crispy vegetables. I envy your asparagus ;-).

  9. Brie - Yes, you really have to watch out for the spears or it will have shot 2-3 ft in a matter of days:)

    Malay-Kadazan girl - Thanks!
