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.
