Harvest Monday

Spring has sprung and the harvest is beginning to pick up. Zukes are starting to fruit, as are tomatoes but it'll be a while before I harvest them. And, for once I remembered to take pictures of the harvest! It was a bit similar to times past, lettuce, eggplant, carrots but this time with one lovely addition - a strawberry (or 3.)

Eggplant was holey, thanks to Mr snail.

Carrots ranged from baby purples,

to lady-shaped purples,

to wierdly mangled multi-colours.

Lettuce is continuous and tasty.

While this Kurowase strawberry was shared by 3 eager tasters.

It was light but sweet and smushy. The Hokowases I ate this morning were smaller but stronger in taste. Looking forward to a large harvest of these this summer. What are you harvesting this week? Look over to Daphne's Dandelions for more posts.

lady carrots, love it!

Daphne said...

You have a balcony garden and still get snails? Somehow it just doesn't seem fair. Love all the pretty carrots you are growing. The purple ones are just so purple.

Hi Prue! Back again! You have a reputation for great harvest. Those strawberries look yummy!

prue said...

Oh wow thanks everyone for all the comments.

Emily - it was great and tasty too

Madame C - welcome to the blog and yay for harvest Monday. Daphne does such a great job with it.

Tyra, Megan, Barbie, JGh, Thyme2garden and Dan - The lady carrot was so funny and pretty that I didn't wan't to eat it (but did and it was extra delicious!!!!) Purple carrots rock

Meemsnyc - they are very sweet when they are small, I only picked them because a snail thorugh they were rather tasty too! Hopefully the other ones size up more.

Daphne - we go on snail killing missions but never get them all, and I really don't like using bait. Must have come in on a plant from someone's garden that they gave me, or in the soil. Not to mind, love a good challenge.

Chandramouli!!!! I was just thinking about you - glad to see you back. Wish I could send you some of the strawberries, they were tasty. Don't give up trying to grow them, I am sure you can.

Yeah for strawberries! So hard to decide who gets those first few berries!!

Purple carrots... my brain has a hard time wrapping my mind around the color but they look good.
