Harvest Monday

Harvest central time on the balcony garden - it is lettuce, lettuce, lettuce leading the way. I can't tell you how many salads we've been enjoying made from this little pot of lettuce. It never seems to end. My favourite was a smoked salmon salad.



We also added some microgreens from this collection as well as a few stray basil leaves from the snail ravaged plants. I figured we may as well enjoy them before the snails finish them off!


Garlic too is beginning to be harvested. The first lot of heads were small, probably not quite ready, but their space was needed and they were wilting so out they came.


And here is a little hint of future harvests ...


With 28 tomato plants in the balcony garden this year, surely we will get at least one delicious little love apple!?!

What a beautiful batch of lettuce you have there! I am amazed too at how much you have growing on a balcony; that takes dedication! Can't wait to see more of your harvests as your season progresses.

Wow! 28 tomatoes on your balcony is amazing. Assuming you get good sun exposure there, then you should definitely get some tomatoes to eat. The lettuces look good - as does that salad. :D

While everyone else is marveling over your tomatoes, I'm still drooling over the beautiful pink bulbs of garlic!
